Middle school task force money to go a long way

Remember when the DOE announced that 51 failing middle schools would be sharing $5 million in special funds, per the recommendations of the City Council's Middle School Task Force? The principals of those schools met earlier this week to learn about the cash and how they may spend it. The Daily News reports that principals are thrilled to get a little extra cash, but can someone tell me how far an average of $100,000 per school can move schools toward "reducing class size, retaining math consultants and hiring more counselors"?
