Grand Unifying Guesses The West Wing
aka: The West Wing
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, every Nickelodeon and Disney live action sitcom from the last decade takes place in the same universe as The West Wing.
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 The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and 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 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.
