Cory Doctorow wrote an entertaining novel for this age group in which students were given ID cards like these after a terrorist attack. They found many interesting ways to mess with the system pretty quickly. The book is called Little Brother.

Please don't place such a condescending stereotype on conservatives. I believe myself to be quite conservative, but I've read Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow (I will finish the rest as I have the opportunity). A colleague of mine at a small midwestern middle school assigned Ender's Game to his students and they read it together in class. He also taught Sunday School at a small conservative church. He received no backlash from parents.
And to say that conservative literature and ideas are embraced by those who are "less intelligent" is intolerant and hateful. (See what I did there? Those are "Liberal" attack words.)
Even though I am a conservative parent and teacher, I can't wait until my children and students are capable of thinking for themselves. As a teacher, I don't see success in test scores, I see it in students' abilities to synthesize information, to discern good information from crap, and to be able to reason through new and challenging situations on their own. But I do occasionally encounter parents who fear a child who can out-think them, or succeed where they failed. It is unfortunate, but it isn't restricted to conservatives. There are people with very liberal ideologies who fail to see the benefits of proper education.
I thought those were the REQUIREMENTS for a YouTube post! Is that what I've been doing wrong?
