The Debian Edu team has announced Debian Edu 8+edu0 “Jessie”, the latest
Debian Edu / Skolelinux release. Debian Edu, also known as Skolelinux,
provides a complete solution for schools. Debian Edu 8 is based on Debian
8 “Jessie”, update 8.5. “Do you have to administrate a computer lab
or a whole school network?
Would you like to install servers, workstations and laptops which will
then work together? Do you want the stability of Debian with network
services already preconfigured? Do you wish to have a web-based tool to
manage systems and several hundred or even more user accounts? Have you
asked yourself if and how older computers could be used?

Then Debian Edu is for you. The teachers themselves or their technical
support can roll out a complete multi-user multi-machine study
environment within a few days. Debian Edu comes with hundreds of
applications pre-installed, but you can always add more packages from
Debian.”
