Карты насчет того, откуда всё берётся, раскрыты в этой невзрачной заметке в Чикаго Сан-Таймс:
When Principal Kim Sims of Chicago's Bouchet Math and Science Academy (номер 30) used to talk to kids about misbehavior, one favorite line was, "How would your parents feel about this?''

But these days, Sims is using another approach. "I ask them, 'How do you think Barack Obama would feel about this?' " Sims said.

The U.S. senator and president-elect from Illinois has become a new staple in schools nationwide. The American Federation of Teachers Web site already features lesson plans that weave Obama into social studies, language arts and technology classes".
