'Lincoln' isn't just a movie anymore: It's a part of your children's education. When the movie comes out on DVD, a copy will be shipped to every public and private high school and middle school in the United States.

Yes, every one...in the ENTIRE UNITED STATES.

Steven Spielberg says, "As more and more people began to see the film, we received letters from teachers asking if it could be available in their classrooms.

"We realized that the educational value that 'Lincoln' could have was not only for the adult audiences, who have studied his life in history books, but for the young students in the classroom as well."

The disc will come with an "educator's guide".

There's no word yet on the release date.
