Sure, there are the local schools wasting your tax dollars. But there are other school-related organizations that stay below the radar and also waste your tax dollars -- and lots of it.
Consider the Delaware Area Career Center. The last time I checked, DACC was spending more than $30K per pupil. No, that is not a misprint. It's insane, but correct all the same. You say, "How could that be?" I say, "Check out the list of DACC board members for the clue."
Then there is the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio (serving Olentangy). Here is an organization that list 84 central office staff members, including a superintendent, treasurer, 7 assistant or deputy superintendents and 9 directors. Does anyone work there?
In addition to DACC and ESCCO, there are other school organizations that no one really knows about. Consider the Metropolitan Educational Council. Here is an organization run by former school administrators making ... anyone's guess. You can be certain that the salaries are significant and the end-product wanting.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Trust me, there are more leeches in this very deep and murky swamp.
 I know, I know, ESCCO hires staff for participating districts, as well as its own programs. But most of the staff are managed by the employing district, not the ESCCO.
