Try targeting your subject lines a bit more specifically.

As previously noted, Debian Jr. may be of interest.

There's a project aimed generally at providing educational software
called seul-edu (simple end-user linux):


The group's principle activities are a mailing list and the website.
These include a set of recommended applications for educational use, and
case studies of various implementations.  There's also a project to
create a bootable GNU/Linux CD along the lines of Knoppix
(http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html).  This is in process, but
should be pretty slick:  a disk that you insert in the CD drive of a
system, reboot, and you're running a GNU/Linux system with an
educational focus.
