I recently created a new world using the Blocks of Grass template for a class I'll be teaching. A colleague and I wanted to test the immutable world setting to make sure it prevented students from building outside our designated "build zone" (a large patch of allow blocks). When immutable world was set to true though, my colleague (logged in as a student) was still able to build/destroy anywhere in the world.
We later discovered thanks to a very clever group of students that the Blocks of Grass template available in Minecraft Edu has changed recently (I believe within the last few months). It's no longer just a few layers of dirt blocks on top of a layer of bedrock as it was previously. Now it's deep! There's a whole bunch of dirt, some stone, then a layer of bedrock and below that (for some confusing reason) is a layer of allow blocks.
Since the entire world now has a layer of allow blocks below it, the immutable world setting is rendered completely useless. I can think of no reason to fill the world with allow blocks by default, so I'm requesting that the allow blocks be removed from the Blocks of Grass template or for the template to just be rolled back to the previous version.
