San Francisco's outgoing superintendent, one of the top five contenders to become Boston's next schools chief, said yesterday she has bowed out of the competition.

Ackerman , 59, said she met with the search committee Monday and said then she could not pursue the job because she needed a break after nearly 10 years as a superintendent and had committed to teaching at Teachers College at Columbia University in the fall.

``Under any other circumstances at a different time in my life, this would be just what I was waiting for," Ackerman said. ``I'm heartbroken that I have to say no."
