SLSD Students started this petition to Southern Lehigh School Board

It has come to my own, along with many other students in the school district's attention, that our school has many unnecessary websites blocked, one of them being Spotify. It is statistically proven by this website: "https://www.foundationeducation.edu.au/articles/2018/07/does-music-help-study#:~:text=Yes%2C%20music%20can%20create%20a,focus%20during%20long%20study%20sessions.&text=Relaxing%20music%20for%20studying%20can,you%20beat%20pre%2Dexam%20anxiety",  that music helps students focus more while in class. If you, as a school board, want grades to go up, then wouldn't you want your students to have the opportunity to listen to music? While few music options are available on our laptop, they are very one-sided. The only available options are Youtube, which is very slow and a lot of the music us as students listen to, is blocked. Alongside Youtube is iTunes and Soundcloud, both of which require subscriptions. Spotify is a very easily accessible music option for several students in this community, as it is a free music service. It may be some students only option, and for students who don't have other ways of listening to music, such as phones or televisions. Although not the most important issue in our current community, this is one of the most popular topics between students. In a bigger manner, some students are berated with so much news and societal change that music is their only escape, such as myself. Many students would be impacted by this change, and I can assure you that grades will go up, and you'll see an improvement with student's attitude towards school.
