Pictured here is a “rally” in support of embattled superintendent of Philadelphia School District, Arlene Ackerman. The signs say, “Dr. Ackerman is a True Leader!!!” and “Save our kids, Save Philly.” These people decided to dedicate themselves to the cause by standing outside of City Hall on Tuesday and block traffic for a little bit.
It’s hard to believe there is anybody in this city that would celebrate Ackerman, when it’s almost a unanimous opinion that she’s doing an awful job, and there are state and local politicians who are actively trying to get her dismissed of her job, and find loopholes around the $1.5 million buyout (at the cost of taxpayers) it would take to do so. Well, it doesn’t really matter. This “rally” consisted of about a dozen people and doesn’t change anything. Maybe if they offered some sort of food under that nice tent of their’s?
