Hello Glen,

This question comes up in regular intervals. Some hints:

- There are some educational stacks to be found at RevOnline.

- Marielle Lange has set up a special website for educational stacks: 

- As far as I know, Marty Billingsley  of the Chicago Laboratory School 
(founded by John Dewey at about 1895 as an institution of "Progressive 
Education") persues the work of Dewey using Revolution both for teaching 
and for introducing students to programming
(search the list archives for more information).

- There is a education-revolution list

- I had anwered to a similar post on this list (use-revolution) on Feb 7:

On page "Projects: Language Suite" you will find some information 
(although still in German) about some language learning stacks. We 
intend to make demo versions available of these stacks in the near future.
