According to Wiki Arlene Ackerman was one bad dude. She was fired for racial discrimination, overt racism and a multitude of other actions which in some places would have exposed her to violations of various criminal statutes. Ackerman was black. Gratefully. she passed at age 66 which limited all kinds of lawsuits against the Phila. School District.

Quote: “Ackerman’s claim to have overseen an improvement in Philadelphia students’ performance on standardized tests was challenged by the emergence of evidence that students’ scores were inflated by widespread teacher-assisted cheating. See: “One-third of District schools had pattern of suspicious erasures” The basic report was that the teachers changed some students answers. The report’s main findings, which sought to identify schools that had some combination of improbable test score jumps, unlikely improvements in student performance levels, and unusually high number of wrong answers that were erased and changed to the correct answer.

A further Notebook review of the detailed erasure analysis done for the report found that 225 schools statewide – 44 percent of them in Philadelphia – had been flagged for highly suspicious numbers of “wrong-to-right” erasures. Although the “erasure analysis” flagged 88 District schools.

“Arlene Ackerman was forced to resign by Mayor Michael Nutter and the School Reform Commission, after a variety of complaints from state senators, teachers, parents, and students.[citation needed] Rampant school violence, dictatorial policy decisions with no teacher involvement, racial intimidation against Asian students at South Philadelphia High School and other Philadelphia schools, extremely unethical bidding for multi-million dollar contracts,[12] the largest school deficit in district history, and recent allegations of test score manipulation clouded Ackerman’s legacy of work for the Philadelphia school district. After three years, she reached an agreement with the Philadelphia School Reform Commission to resign her post in return for $905,000 plus $86,000 in unused vacation pay.[13][14] In November 2011, she caused surprise by filing for unemployment compensation.”
Showing the deep bias against justice from official institutions that get it wrong on purpose or because Affirmative Action forces them into acting against doing what’s right, Ackerman received numerous honors and awards including Apple for the Teacher Award-Iota Lambda Sorority, Distinguished Alumni Award-Harris Stowe Teachers College, and recognition from Harvard University’s Urban Superintendents Program. Ackerman served on The President’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities which advises the President and the Secretary of Education on strengthening these institutions. In 2004 she was named ‘Superintendent of the Year’ by the National Association of Black School Educators. In 2010, she received the Richard R. Green Award for Urban Superintendent of the Year from the Council of Great City Schools in recognition of her contributions to urban schools and students. As the winner of the Richard R. Green Award, Ackerman received a $10,000 college scholarship to give to a student. Dr. Ackerman selected Emilio Garcia, a 2011 graduate of the district, to receive the scholarship.[16][17] In 2011 she received the Dr. Effie Jones Humanitarian Award which honors leadership in educational equity and excellence.

Disgracefully, Ackerman held the Christian A. Johnson Endowed Chair in Outstanding Educational Practice at Teachers College, Columbia University.[5]

Ackerman who was black and her team earned praise from President Barack Obama who is also black and United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan who is also black for an intervention approach aimed at turning around the District of Columbia’s struggling schools under the Empowerment, Renaissance and Promise Academy initiatives.

This is how America ends. Taken over by Liberals who hate white people and want them eliminated. For further reading on this America Genocide and how it’s happened before read “Into the Cannibals Pot” by Ilana Mercer. “Ilana Mercer calls her book `a labor of love to my homelands, old and new.’ The old is South Africa, which the author left in 1995. The new is the U.S.A. In both nations the founding European stock yielded up their dominance in the interests of justice and liberty. Instead of moving to equal citizenship under fair laws, however, both nations – in different style and measure but with similarly dire results – have embraced official tribalism (`multiculturalism’) and state-enforced racial favoritism (`affirmative action’). For South Africa the transformation has been fatal – brutally so for victims of the nation’s swelling social disorder, as Ms. Mercer documents in heartbreaking detail. For the U.S.A. it is not too late to change course. The lesson of South Africa, if widely known, will help to open American eyes. Here is the lesson, in a compelling and important book.” –JOHN DERBYSHIRE, novelist, “National Review” columnist, pop- math writer, author most recently of “We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism,” and all- round bon vivant.
“`The truth shall set you free,’ a memorable Biblical phrase tells us. It does not say the truth shall make us comfortable or happy. `Into The Cannibal’s Pot’ fits this mold: it is an interesting, important, well- written and well-documented book that informs the reader but is likely to upset, perhaps even anger, some or many of them. –THOMAS SZASZ, the author of “The Myth of Mental Illness,” “Psychiatry: The Science of Lies,” and many other books

“Egalitarianism leads to democracy; democracy leads to socialism; socialism leads to economic destruction; and democratic socialism in multicultural societies leads to death and democide. This, in shocking detail, is what Ilana Mercer illustrates superbly in her case study of post-apartheid South Africa. America’s political and intellectual `elites’ will ignore this book, because it is politically `incorrect.’ We can only do so at our own peril.” –HANS-HERMANN HOPPE, Austrian school economist, libertarian political philosopher, emeritus professor of economics, University of Nevada, distinguished fellow, the Ludwig von Mises Institute, author of “Democracy: The God That Failed,” and “The Economics and Ethics of Private Property”

“If you want to witness the end result of what in America is called `diversity,’ you must read `Into the Cannibal’s Pot.’ `Diversity’ is a euphemism for racial retribution administered mostly by guilty white liberals in universities, corporations, and government. It is a thoroughly collectivist notion that condones punishing the current generation of white males for the sins of the past. It’s most extreme form is practiced in post-Apartheid South Africa, and its effects are meticulously documented by Ilana Mercer (who also writes marvelously): rampant black-on-white crime, racist labor laws that have created `The world’s most extreme affirmative action program’; the confiscation of private property; economic socialism; state-sponsored terrorism; and, most sickeningly, the idolization of the corrupt and murderous Zimbabwean dictator, Robert Mugabe. The Western media ignore all of this because of their ideological love affair with the communistic African National Congress and, frankly, their support for many of these same policies.” –THOMAS J. DILORENZO, professor of economics, Loyola College, Maryland, author of the best-selling “The Real Lincoln,” “Lincoln Unmasked,” and most recently, “Hamilton’s Curse”

“Ilana Mercer’s well-documented, encompassing study is at once heartbreaking, infuriating, illuminating and instructive. Ethnic cleansing is underway in the once great nation of South Africa, but Americans hear nothing of it; they are deliberately shielded by the same parties that served to bring it about, the liberal elites in Western governments and the press who believe that white South Africans `have it coming.’ It is white guilt and the so-called right of black reprisal extrapolated to ghastly extremes; political correctness on steroids, and all in the name of craven progressive ideology. If the West is ever to occupy anything resembling moral high ground – not to mention avoiding this fate itself – it will have to come to terms with its part in South Africa’s demise, and the misery, degradation and naked horror of those who now suffer.” — ERIK RUSH, columnist and author of Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal-America’s Racial Obsession. Erik was the first to break the story of President (then Senator) Barack Obama’s ties to the militant, Afrocentric, Chicago preacher Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

“Into the Cannibal’s Pot is well-written, courageous, and is clearly a strong socio-political tract on South Africa.” — IRVING LOUIS HOROWITZ, Hannah Arendt distinguished professor emeritus, Rutgers University, New Jersey

“An unflinching take on South Africa. This is well done.” — JED DONAHUE, Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI)

“Into the cannibal’s Pot is brilliant, exceeding all my expectations. It is very courageous of Ilana Mercer also to attack the whole notion of ‘democracy.’ This is a much-needed shot at a holy cow.” — DAN ROODT, Ph.D., noted Afrikaner activist, author, literary critic, director, PRAAG.
