Deputy superintendent joins exodus of top Boston school administrators

Deputy Superintendent Michael Goar, the second in command in the Boston public schools, announced his resignation on Wednesday, the latest in a series of high-level departures that have left notable gaps in the superintendent’s leadership team.

Goar’s exit is surprising, given his position as one of Superintendent Carol R. Johnson’s closest and most loyal advisers. He came to Boston just a few months after Johnson became superintendent in 2007, and he previously worked for her while she oversaw school systems in Memphis and Minneapolis.
