Thailand: Obama inspired education policy shift

It was speculated that under Obama the US would exert more "soft power" influence on the world; that the US could be a force for good. It already seems to be happening. The Bangkok Post reports:
Barack Obama's education policies have inspired the Education Ministry to change its own policies in the early childhood sector.

Changes inspired by the US president-elect's platform will be introduced as guidelines in national education development for the 2009 academic year.
Speaking of Obama and early childhood education, in May I visited Obama's former elementary school in Jakarta.
