Ok, I'm not sure if "curriculum" is the most appropiate word.
For Spanish speakers it's confusing, and it may drive to think that it's an 
app for *creating* curricula. 
The idea seems to be school-linux-book , that is, a book about usage of linux 
in school, configuration, advocacy, study cases. I can't imagine a shorter 
name without losing a great deal of meaning. Because:
school-linux .... seems a program
linux-book... says nothing about config IN SCHOOL or advocay
school-book... misses Linux, although, Linux is getting an ubiquitous concept 
:), so you can gap it. 

Any FOB, SFOV, UFO, NSA, NASA ... sort of thingy is kinda confusing, but
