Why not provide a CD or downloadable RPMs for all of the particulars
you want installed (the education software, etc.)

Or, if you use Debian, just have a repository of software which one can
add to their "/etc/apt/sources.list".  Then do something like:

  apt-get install task-student
  apt-get install task-teacher

(or, better yet, "task-student-grade12", for example... to install all
of the educational software a high school senior would need (and avoiding,
for example, math teaching programs for 1st graders ;) ))
