For this sort of thing, you might find LTSP to be absolutely great. I
think you could setup a small demo using the Edubuntu pretty easily to
show them the potential. Then they just have to pickup a server and
Edubuntu 7.04 Classroom Server CD
The Edubuntu Classroom Server CD allows you to install Edubuntu
permanently on a computer as either a Server or Workstation. It
includes LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) support, providing
out-of-the-box thin client support. This is the recommended CD for
installation of Edubuntu.
