In case this helps:

Linux is the kernel -- the core component which loads first and deals
directly with (almost) all of the hardware.  It's present on every linux
distribution (albeit different versions, slightly tailored) so kernel
problems very often are common to all linux distributions.

Ubuntu is a distribution which is a specially tailored selection of
(mostly) free software programs which includes a version of the linux

Edubuntu is pretty much identical to Ubuntu except it has a different
selection of software packages tailored toward educational environments.
It has the same kernel, same version of gnome, openoffice, etc.  but adds
different artwork, LTSP, gcompris, etc.
