A draft management study has found that the Columbus City Schools district in Ohio could save $65 million to $100 million annually of the $412 million it spends on "mostly non-instructional" expenses. The study, commissioned by Mayor Michael B. Coleman's education commission, states that the district could cut costs by recouping the money it spends busing charter-school students, changing some business practices and lobbying for changes to some state laws. The study notes some changes may be met with public backlash.
