You can use Motomapia.

http://www.motomapia.com/

You have to pan/zoom inside a fixed area to finalise the POI window and then click download.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

You can use the wikimapia API http://wikimapia.org/api/

Specifically, you can use the API box to get the data from the category such as 'Schools' as KML http://wikimapia.org/wiki/API_box
