Group Policy / Active Directory Management Windows 2008 R2

We are a K-12 school that was running W2003 with Active Directory.  I set up containers for each classroom, which contained all the computer objects for that classroom.  I then added a group policy to each container making the classroom teacher the administrator on the group (i.e. over all the computers in his/her classroom.)  
Procedure:  Right click on container --> properties --> Group Policy tab --> (create a policy) --> then add Administrators group to Restricted Groups and populate it with the right teachers.

I am migrating to Server 2008 R2, and have one 08R2 Domain controller set up and running AD.

Problem:  Where are my group policies?  I need to move the classroom administration capabilities to new teachers and everything has changed.

You have to use GPMC to view/edit/work with policies.  In 2008 you can install GPMC via the features

As it turns out, I already had GPMC installed.  I opened it and found a list of my group policies, so I guess I can do the editing I need.  But I am used to getting to the policy through the container in Active Directory.  Is that path still open, and if so, how do I get there?  The current method of handling group policies is not intuitive to me.

I'm in business.  I knew this would be easy, but Google let me down and time was an issue.

Thanks.
