From Boston Globe:

Turahn Dorsey will serve as Boston’s first chief of education, a new Cabinet-level official who will cultivate relationships with the more than 128 public schools in the city. Dorsey will collaborate with charter schools, parochial schools, private schools, and college and universities, although he will not have direct power over those institutions. Described as “probably the first of its kind in the nation,” the chief of education will work to identify key educational aspects to work on, build consensus around those ideas, and be the chief organizer.
