At Temple University last night, the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers accepted a 4 percent pay raise and an extension of their collective-bargaining agreement through Aug. 31, 2009.

The union's contract expired Aug. 31 but was extended two months.

Schools Superintendent Arlene Ackerman had offered the 16,000-member union a one-year pact, but PFT President Jerry Jordan insisted upon a multiyear deal.
