I would suggest checking out why Debian use exim4 by default, and
seriously consider if it is important to do differently.

Personally (and professionally) I use postfix, but we really want the
distribution to work out-of-the-box so switching to an MTA different
from Debian default may not be wise.

Schools wanting postfix or a different MTA can easily switch. MTAs
should be generally interchangeable.

It was argued that Schooltool works best with postfix. That sounds like
a problem of that specific application, not an argument for changing
generally IMHO.
