I agree with your assessment, so I'm turning this into a bug report so
that it doesnt get forgotten.

Though upon reading the introduction, there's actually a small
introduction of what Debian Edu is and the 
is linked, which (I agree is partly outdated…) I think describes what
the strength of Debian Edu are.

Nonetheless I think you are right and we should improve this. Just not
sure yet, how exactly :)
