Hi Sokar,

For desktop publishing there are a couple pf packages:

http://www.scribus.net : Scribus - A Desktop Publishing Tool


http://www.inkscape.org : Inkscape - A very nice Vector Graphics tool,
in a similar vein to Adobe's Illustrator.

For educational software I would recommend checking out a project called
Edubuntu( http://www.edubuntu.org/ ) Based off Ubuntu it's a linux
distro aimed specifically at the educational sector.
