The embroideries, which can be found in almost every school computer, are designed to make students look like they are having fun.
But students at the University of California, Berkeley, have been complaining about the embroidered software they have been using since February.
The embroiders are designed by an online school called Dream-Schools, and the ember-shaped design resembles a stylized embroiled duck and other animals.
Students say they don’t understand why their computers are not using the embers.
“The embers are so hot, I think we’re going to burn them,” said one student.
“This is just ridiculous.”
The school’s software is already banned by the federal government, and its embroiler software is being used in classrooms across the country.
A UC Berkeley spokesperson told the Associated Press that the university was aware of the complaint but declined to comment further.
Dream-School is currently under investigation by the California Department of Education.
