We could try addressing exactly those issues in the next setup :)

I lean more towards option (1) and (2).  It looks like a direction to take where
we can also lower the bar of contributing and increase collaboration /
among the various language groups in Debian-Edu. I am not aware of any good
multi-lingual CMS, but I think we should spend some time to see if we can use
something existing. Maybe we can look at some things in the upcoming BSP[0].
