School District Says Releasing Unsigned Ackerman Agreement Was Error

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The School District of Philadelphia says a draft document listing perks that were not approved for schools superintendent Arlene Ackerman should have remained under wraps.

The draft amendment, which was never approved, was released on the city’s web site along with hundreds of other internal school documents, under the new “Education Accountability Agreement”  (see previous story).

The draft proposed that Ackerman get free health care for life, and six-figure bonuses placed into a trust, in addition to her existing performance bonuses and a $100,000 retention bonus (which she has deferred).

School district spokeswoman Shana Kemp, in a statement, calls that draft document “null and void,” and says it never should have been released to the city.

      Why should she get perks that no other employee’s get ? And why does she feel entitled to get something that no other general populoation workers get ?

  3. bigben says:

    why no transparency ? What is the justification for her 150K bonus ? Resolving school violence ? improving scores on bogus standardized tests ? Why are the administrators who contribute to the school’s problems getting rewarded ?

  4. caps says:
