It’s order in the court for a group of Brooklyn middle-schoolers.
Mark Twain Intermediate School cut the ribbon on their new class courtroom Friday. Councilman Mark Treyger allocated $180,000 in funding to renovate the old print shop classroom into a mini court of law.
The space will give students the opportunity to take a new law and debate course. It also gives the school’s debate team a place to practice and hold competitions.
"These are the people, young people, that we really need to develop to become our future leaders of our society, so, this room will produce the future leaders of our city and of our country," said Treyger.
The new class courtroom heard its two first mock cases already, the boy who cried wolf vs. the village of Sheepfold and Rumpelstiltskin vs. Queen Mallory.
