In case the Notablility of Ms. Ackerman is in question, please see all these articles on her. [1] FunkyDuffy (talk) 06:25, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

The notability tag was obviously silly, so I just removed it. —Mark Dominus (talk) 21:30, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Anonymous additions[edit]

Recently an anonymous user pasted large amounts of text into the article. It almost appears as if someone is inserting Dr. Ackerman's entire CV. The tone is inappropriate for an encyclopedia article, and none of the new material is cited to reliable sources. Also, if the material is copied from Dr. Ackerman's CV, it is a copyright violation. So I am going to revert all the additions. —Mark Dominus (talk) 21:20, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

I also posted an explanation at User talk:, inviting the user to continue the discussion here. —Mark Dominus (talk) 21:29, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

I have spent the past 42 years of my life serving young people. I have a successful career improving achievement for all children especially those who are poor, black and brown. Why is it that only negative articles about my career are posted on this website? Where is the balance? And, what gives you or any person the right to print only one side of my career and then remove my attempt to balance the one-sided print media? I edited this profile and everything I put on it can be verified by facts and data. Who are you really trying to serve? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:17, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

  • If you're the subject of this article, it is best if you post here any changes that you think are needed. That way, independent editors can review the sources for the changes that you propose and add them to the article. As you have seen, overly COI editing is usually not very productive. --Guillaume2303 (talk) 16:26, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

This article is completely absurd. She was part of a systematic campaign to fix student test scores! No mention of this?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:56, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
