Arlene Ackerman, the Philadelphia school superintendent, has been a polarizing figure since she arrived here in 2008. There have been allegations of principals forcing teachers to change test scores, Asian youths being terrorized and beaten in school with no discipline to the offenders, expensive lunches for the friends of Ackerman, and the list goes on.
Recently she went public and dared the school reform commission to fire her.
