LAWRENCE HARMON

A little too close for comfort

IT’S GETTING slippery around the Boston School Committee headquarters on Court Street. And the member most likely to lose footing is John Barros, the executive director of a well-known nonprofit organization, the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative.

Barros, who is serving his first term on the School Committee, has missed about 20 percent of the meetings since May 2010. And when he does attend, he has removed himself from the School Committee chamber twice to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest related to his organization’s role as a “primary community partner’’ in a recently approved in-district charter school.
