I took the liberty to also send my answer to the debian-edu mailinglist :-)

We now working with getting more developers and users to join in on the 
joint effort with Skolelinux[1]/Debian Edu[2]. There are probably more than 
125 schools in Norway that has taken Skolelinux into daily use. It's also 
60 schools[3][4] in Uganda, some in Germany and hopefully more will come. 

Skolelinux is not only a Custom Debian Distribution. It's also a practical 
work with exchanging user experiences[5] and how to introduce and operate a 
free software solution in the schools. 

There are also interesting movement in Spain and Brazil where they have 
joined[6] in on the work with sharing their experiences with the 
Debian-community. Se more about this in on the website to Extremadura[7] 
and some information about Telecentros[8] (hopefully I got the last link 

Your people should join use at this mailing-list :-)
