Does anyone have a recommendation of a science fiction, dystopian short story(s)? My mom’s a high school English teacher and I’m trying to help her come up with something for her class.

Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut
Philip K Dick wrote lots of dystopian short stories , it is hard to recommend just one , you could buy any of the collections available and choose one yourself .
The Machine Stops by EM Forster, this would be possibly an English teachers choice
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess , strictly speaking a novella but would still be a good choice.
