Ackerman denied unemployment benefits
PHILADELPHIA - February 1, 2012 (WPVI) -- Action News has learned the Pennsylvania Department of Labor has turned down Arlene Ackerman's unemployment claim.
The former Philadelphia schools superintendent was given $905,000 to walk away from her job last August.
The deal also allowed her to file for unemployment benefits.
She could have collected nearly $600 a week.
Today, Dr. Ackerman told Action News she was not going to fight the decision.
She said, "The Philadelphia chapter of my life is behind me. I've done all that I can give to that city."
