"Make it easier to read what's on your screen" through group policies

I have few Netbooks that have a 1366 x 768 display (Windows 7 Pro).  All of the others have a 1024 x 600 display.  1366 x 768 is really too high a resolution for such a small screen… Text, icons, etc end up too small.  If I increase the “Make it easier to read what is on the screen” display setting to 125% the user experience is much better.  Is there a way to do this through Group Policy or registry edits?  This setting defaults to 100% and seems to be a user specific setting.  I set the Local Administrator to 125% but when new domain user logins in their setting is set to the default, 100%.  This is a school environment where students checkout a unit and may never use the same one twice  so having the user change the setting would not really work besides the students don’t have access to modify display settings.

Any Ideas?
