Are you looking for Eee PC specifically or just school children's reaction to Windows vs. GNU/Linux?  I recently ran an installfest that refurbished 350 Ubuntu desktop computers for underprivileged schools. (www.untangle.com/installfest)  We are in the process of distributing the Ubuntu computers now and I could put you in touch with a number of contacts if you like.  Please email mail me off the list if you are interested.
