Many schools have decided to start filtering out sites such as Replit which allows students to code in the browser. Some schools have called this site a "distraction" as students are choosing to learn computer science and programming as opposed to working on other subjects. This is a problem for many teachers who use Replit, as it takes away a vital educational tool. We're looking to get Replit unblocked in schools. Not only is it an educational tool, but it is helping to inspire young people to pursue computer science, which is a growing need in our advancing world. You all know how valuable Replit is, you are the power we need to get this problem solved once and for all.

lol we're probably gonna reach 1000 votes. Not that it'll change anything though, they're probably gonna ignore you when you show up with your petition.

@Jeydin21 yeah but what if it does? what if they will see that he/she went out and found people who believe in the same thing they do. school tries to teach us things but your probably learning more from this than school. creating a petition like this shows you how to bring people together toward a common cause and that's very useful in the work force.

@AntimatterDev plus the fact that at least half of what you get taught in school is useless

I'm in 7th grade and my science teacher is teaching the class scratch. I already learned HTML, basic CSS, basic C#, and Python.

If they really wanted to support the students, they could at least let them use it. it could get them a job in the future.
