I'll spare you from my how-to-spell-jonathan page this time :)

I haven't looked at it yet, but I've heard a lot about it and seen some
screenshots. I think there's a few things that will happen before we
could consider it for inclusion in Edubuntu. It should be able to
support translations, and at least have an upstream release somewhere so
that we could package it. It also depends on iTALC's future, I believe
it may be due for a rewrite at some point.

Alkis, is there a project page for sch-scripts somewhere?
