In terms of distros for education there is already
I think there is something called SkolLinux and Edubuntu,
But I agree, there is the FSF distros too.
I am involve with ToriOS ( https://torios.top/ ) so if Jinnijus is
interested we are always looking for help with that. We are aiming to
just build a lightweight distribution.
Hope this helps
