Public education, with it's federally-mandated position on science, teaches kids to "shut up and believe what we tell you".

I think you are going off the deep end on this one. The decisions that ID doesn't pass scientific muster and that supernatural causation is not part of science only means that science has standards, not that it has suddenly become tyrannical. There are many genuine scientific questions that can be used to develop critical reasoning skills without having to talk about religion.

I also suspect that if you look at the list of countries that do a better job teaching science, very few have ID as part of their curriculum.
