Kids make hierarchies of things. Scratch is considered elementary school, regular middle school kids still use Scratch but the “real programmer” kids are coding using LUA in Roblox or learning Python and dreaming about learning C++, which is considered the “real language” of programming by many of the younger set. It’s all Coke vs Pepsi stuff really as all programming languages have tradeoffs but like any field there’s elitism and it’s not uncommon.
