You didn't think you'd heard the end of Arlene Ackerman, did you?

As the Daily News has reported, the controversial former Philadelphia School District superintendent has applied for unemployment benefits.  That's on top of the payout of nearly $1 million that she got as a result of her separation agreement.

It's a shock.  But if you read Ackerman's separation agreement carefully, you saw this coming.

The district "agrees not to contest any claims which Dr. Ackerman may make for unemployment compensation benefits..."

I'm mulling my entry for It's Our Money's Ackerman haiku contest.
