There is a second CD ("Edubuntu 7.04 Classroom Server Add-on CD") which
includes all of the education apps.

If you have reasonable bandwidth though, you can just start the synaptic
package manager (under system->administration), and search for "education".
It doesn't seem to be one single package, but is broken up into topics.

As far as I know kubuntu-desktop should sit alongside fine if you need it.
I have the xubuntu-desktop alongside gnome and use it sometimes.  Whether
you want to support different people using both is up to you, though it may
be a lot of work.
