This ought to go over real big among people around here fighting for a couple hundred bucks a week in unemployment benefits.
A former superintendent of schools in Philadelphia got a nearly $1 million buyout when she was separated from her post in the wake of a series of calamities including a big budget deficit and a no-bid contract award.
Now, she’s filed for unemployment.
And she stands to get $573 a week, according to this dispatch from CBSPhilly.com.
No surprise here: the potential payout is raising a pretty good stink, particularly among some school police officers who were laid off and had to fight for unemployment.
BTW: The super in question qualifies for thoses bennies because she was asked to leave the school district, but not fired for cause. The state ultimately will decide the fate of the claim.
