School districts and other local governments falsely reported private consultants as public employees so the consultants could get public pensions and health benefits, at a cost of millions of dollars to the taxpayers. In addition, scores of school administrations retired with six-figure pensions, only to return to work in so-called interim school jobs. That enabled them to collect six-figure salaries on top of their already rich pensions and health benefits. Both practices were done under the radar, known only to a club of insiders who reaped the benefits.
