Well that figure is OTT. A more reasonable amount would be 1 at 100 and two local wikipedians at much less. For example an offpeak travel card in london costs 7 odd quid. So by choosing Londoners to visit the London schools costs would be cut considerably. I'm pretty sure the same could be said for other towns. Of course 5 schools is paltry. Upping it to 15 would easily up the numbers to a reasonable amount.
