I can tell you from personal experience that pitching FOSS or FOSS-based 
products and services to education is really hard work.

It took literally months to get a technology provider for an LEA 
(MEWAN)to sign up to antibodyMX, and that was via a direct route; I 
didn't have to go via their front door. It has been well worth the time 
invested, though and I know that they have done some internal 
newsletters mentioning their successful use of a FOSS-based service.
