Overpaid Philadelphia Educrat Collects $905,000 Buyout, Then Files for Unemployment Comp

The greed of the halfwit bureaucrats who rule us is massive enough to warp space and time:

A former Philadelphia school district superintendent who collected a $905,000 contract buyout from the city has reportedly filed for unemployment benefits.

Educrat Arlene Ackerman has been riding high on the taxpayer financed gravy train.

Her weekly salary was $6,669 and her annual salary $346,000, according to records obtained by the station.

Ackerman and the School Reform Commission agreed to part ways in August — with Ackerman getting $905,000 plus retirement funds and pay for vacation and leave days.

She accepted the buyout — i.e., quit — with several years left on her obscenely bloated contract to protest budget cuts. There is no money left for anything but useless bureaucrats’ salaries and pensions, but that’s no reason not to throw a tantrum at the mere hint of slowing down the explosive expansion of Big Government that is causing our economy to collapse.

With a salary of $346,000, you might think she is at least competent. If so, think again.

The school district reportedly had a $629 million deficit under Ackerman and is still laying off employees as it struggles to make ends meet…

Let me guess the liberal solution: raise taxes on those greedy capitalists who get rich by creating wealth, rather than by shuffling papers around and looting the public treasury.

Meanwhile, remedial reading is taught in college because kids come out of public schools having learned nothing of value.

    And my “fair share” of paying for this madness? I say nothing! Zilch. Zero. Nada. I’m here to tell all collectivists, my “fair share” of paying for collectivism is zero, zip, nada.

    As I have posted elsewhere on this site:

    I will not comply with their laws, I will not fund their agendas, I will not recognize their presumed authority over my person or property, and I will never submit to their rule.

    STOP funding these a-holes and the stupidity will stop!

    STOP paying the illegal and unnecessary taxes your would be rulers insist upon. When they come with force against you, rain death upon them. I guaranty the madness will stop.

    STOP living as a willing victim to the Marxist mentality.

    This is the fact of the New America. The Occutards are merely jealous that they didn’t get this ripoff.

    This is what the Great Society, Unions, and Affirmative Action have wrought upon us.

    We are partly to blame for allowing it to continue for so long. Due to political-correctness, it may be too late to reverse our spiral into hell.

    Take a good look at her picture. That is our children’s educator. Top it all off, she’s going to get unemployment. God help us.

    Poor Philly. Rarely is there a more bombastic and entitled feeling specimen than a state enabled public school administrator.

    CEOs, CFOs, COOs, etc ain’t got nothing on these cats you Occuttwats. At least they have to report to a company board. Who do these bureaucrats have to report to once they are firmly entrenched within da system?? Their incestuous union bosses/peers? We probably have 50,000 of these type of individuals in the CA school system… f’n mind boggling.

    Surely the rape mobs will occupy this woman’s house…

    Oh nevermind. She’s a black person and a Democrat.

    Ok, you can get back to being all rapey and stuff now, you fucking worthless subhuman pieces of hippy shit.

    If you’re on Facebook, post this story and watch the lib family members go bonkers.

    I plan to, and it’ll be on the wall of my nephew, a teacher’s union representative. I suspect the posting won’t even get warm before he takes it down, but it’ll make for some fun watching his head explode.

    The answer is very simple. Take the total amount of money spend in your school system. Divide that by the number of students. Now you know how much money is being spend per student (probably $10,000 per student).

    Ask yourself if you couldn’t find a group of educators who would be willing to educate your and a few of your neighbors’ kids for that amount.

    Public schools are cesspools of mediocracy because they have no competition. And this sweet lady is the poster child.

    Son of Taz,

    He’ll remove your post because he doesn’t know how to defend this fat parasite.

    Going to work today I was listening to interview with Pat Toomey on 1210 AM WPHT. He literally snickered & then LOL’d when told about this rapacious wench. While on Super Duper Committee, Toomey & other Republicans looked for ways to cut spending, food stamps for instance. They wanted to include & count one’s assets, not just income to determine eligibility for public assistance. Toomey listed as an example a lottery winner who pocketed 960K in winnings, but applied for food stamps because his income was 0. A nearly 1Min bank vault counted for nothing. Ketchup Kerry got his way in the end.

    The Left Is Pretty OK with this. Some comments:

    “Philadelphia school superintendent is a hefty position, requiring a Ph.D., so considering, $350,000 doesn’t seem too excessive to me…”

    “She’s paid taxes towards unemployment her entire career, just as we all have…”

    And then they call the Tea Party racist.

    And then, the Parasite Ackerman goes onto MSDNC to whine that the criticism she’s taking isn’t fair:

    Ackerman told NBC Philadelphia that the buyout of $905,000 may sound like a lot of money, but it’s not that simple.

    Ackerman said that about 40 percent of that lump sum is going to be taken out in taxes, and $130,000 of that she will not receive for a few years.

    Ackerman also said that her retirement benefits were cut in half, compared to what she would have received if she remained as superintendent.

    “I did nothing wrong,” Ackerman whined.

    She’s whining that the state is taking our taxes and leaving her with a measly half-mil. Damn that greedy rich 1%

    It’s Philadelphia…
    The Mayor is Michael Nutter.

    End of story.

    Another money-hungry and totally corrupt black official. It seems there isn’t a honest one in the bunch. Almsot every black politician in NY is under indictment. Then again, with a nation of weak, gullible, and mindless voters, what more could we expect.

    REPEAL THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964!

    It really is a cultural thing. A D.C. government job is a license to steal, just like N.O., L.A., Detroit, etc. Anybody seeing a pattern here? Chocolate, perhaps?

    OH SNAP!!! That’s why her name sounded so familiar to me… She was booted out of my town of San Francisco too!!

    To refresh everyone’s memory, in 2006, Ackerman was also shown the door in San Francisco, collecting $375,000 in severance pay to clear out of her office. She then briefly sued the district, claiming she was owed $172,000 more in unused benefits, a lawsuit she eventually dropped.
