Yes.  Since the Pi needs proprietary firmware that could be concealing 
backdoors, or more likely just contain security vulnerabilities which 
aren't fixable.  The advantage of the Pi is that it's cheap and 
relatively ubiquitous.  Young people are probably far more likely to 
encounter or have access to a Pi rather than an A13.
