    Former Philadelphia Superintendent Applies for Unemployment Benefits After $905K Buyout

    Former Philadelphia schools superintendent Arlene Ackerman received a $905,000 buyout when she resigned in August but attracted a chorus of criticism after applying for Pennsylvania unemployment benefits.

    Gov. Tom Corbett signed a law in June that takes large severance payments into account when filing unemployment compensation, but that law will take affect in January so it will not apply to Ackerman.

    Ackerman's attorney, Dean Weitzman, who negotiated the buyout, said that she deserves it and the unemployment claims.

    I would say - she has a lack of responsibility.

    If she received 900 K - either she has no responsibility with money - or.....

    I cannot speak to her being responsible or irresponsible not knowing her situation. However my guess is she sees it as its legally hers, so take it, wisdom.
