You understood wrong or know nothing much about Edubuntu. A simple visit 
to www.edubuntu.org would have given you a link to 
http://www.edubuntu.org/Download which should have sufficed to inform 
you of the existence of the Edubuntu Addon CD.

Maybe I should have said do a 'apt-cache search edubuntu' instead. 
Perhaps you would have been more willing to try that than run a gui app. 
Or are you trying to pick a fight? /me tosses Cybe a flame thrower and 
dons on suit of asbestos armour.
