[[WMG: Unless explicitly stated otherwise, every Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and Creator/{{Disney}} live-action sitcom from the last decade takes place in the same universe as ''Series/TheWestWing''.]]
This explains the total absence of "No Child Left Behind"-related standardized testing, coaching for the same, and any other conservative-oriented education "reforms" from the Bush and late Clinton years. It's particularly noticeable in ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' and ''Series/ICarly'', which both feature supposedly inner-city schools that resemble well-run suburban public schools far more than the blackboard jungles or excessively regimented "model programs" usually depicted in media; and the latter show has [[{{Access}} presumably commonplace home Internet connections]] capable of ''uploading'' live-streaming video at SDTV quality and frame rate, with glitches few and far between. All pointing to a different political ideology in place throughout recent years than what actually was.
