Youtube and blocking specific categories

Coming from another vendor one of the features I like/had was that I could block categories within YouTube. We are a School District that needs to access YouTube (YouTube for Education has limited content). It would be nice to setup a policy or rule to be able to block these YouTube Categories.

Currently available categories are:
• Film
• Autos
• Music
• Animals
• Sports
• Shortmov
• Travel
• Games
• Videoblog
• People
• Comedy
• Entertainment
• News
• Howto
• Education
• Tech
• Nonprofit
• Movies
• Movies_anime_animation
• Movies_action_adventure
• Movies_classics
• Movies_comedy
• Movies_documentary
• Movies_drama
• Movies_family
• Movies_foreign
• Movies_horror
• Movies_sci_fi_fantasy
• Movies_thriller
• Movies_shorts
• Shows
• Trailers

There could be another rule that if its not categorised then it blocks it or select an option to warn or allow.

Also perhaps the ability to change a video category like you can with domains?
