SCATS ~~ I think this is a great idea, but aren't most students supposed to be in school during these hours?

I'd like to do this! Are adults (without a student) welcome to go, too?

Maybe a student's schedule is adjusted if they sign up for this program....better to have the kids on the right side of the law than in the courtroom on the wrong side ;).

...ahhh I'm taking the article to mean if they sign up with a "school group" (ok, that makes sense). I think it's an excellent idea that could make kids follow the path to becoming lawyers and upward. Kudos to the Greece court system.
