This would be great, my school is split between Ubuntu and Fedora (when
required to teach Linux). Some teachers push Ubuntu because it has more
market share on the desktop, while others push Fedora because they teach
Red Hat Servers and know that Ubuntu isn't Red Hat.
I think if more was done to make Fedora for Schools it could help a lot.
I have been in talks with my school to push more open source and am
currently trying to get the Processor Arch teacher to use open source
equipment like the Arduino. I'm converting all the material we cover on
the dragon boards over to Arduino in hopes that future students can
benefit from it. I only mention that because I had to use windows in
that class because the software was only windows based, and I would like
to be able to use Fedora in all my classes.
I hope this helps give an idea of what's going on in other schools for
anyone that is building such a spin.

Yes, I know Sugar. But, It's very helpful get a Linux distro with some
software about Educations. Such as Stellarium, Celestia, LibreOffice
(This is most important Office Suite It's not included on none Spin
(!) and more...
Mandriva made a distro for teachers-students. That's allow create
session to work something together.
Will be very
interesting to bring Fedora into classrooms to avoid uses Windows as
only choice for everybody. :(
I think, if Fedora brings to Electricians, robots... would be very
good make an Educational spin.
