4.25.12—Philadelphia Pa: (Education Reform/Politics/Non-profit/Activism): Whoever picked Tuesday, April 24th 2012 as the day the Philadelphia School District would throw in the towel, has won the office pool and will be getting a free trip to somewhere exotic -- maybe New Mexico to drink Margaritas with former Superintendent Arlene Ackerman - who according to esteemed elder, scholar, historian, author, and lecturer Dr. Edward Robinson, killed, via neglect, his critically acclaimed and academically vetted Afrocentric educational course - which was approved years ago by the School District of Philadelphia but inexplicably has never been implemented. Ackerman, when asked about infusing the course into District's curriculum, stated she didn't know anything about it - Dr. Robinson responded, "They gave me $57,000 to write it! How you not going to know about a $57,000 contract paid to a black man! Ain't no way the world. She should've found out about it!" Senator LeAnna Washington, who stood with Senator Stark and other Pennsylvania State Senators back in August of '11 to introduce Senate Bill 1210, which would demolish the SRC (School Reform Commission) and replace it with a nine (9) member elected school board, told Ackerman "You need to find out about it! Our children's lives' depend on it."
