Note there used to be an Education Spin. The goal wasn't quite the same, but
you might want to look at it for ideas.

What you described on your description page wasn't is more than just a spin.
You would also need to build a comps group for each age group you wanted to
be selected at install time.

Also note that being able to install a subset of packages at installation
time precludes doing a live spin as those can only install everything.

You'll probably what to look at information on the spins process on the
Spins SIG page.

In case you either don't want to or the Spins SIG does not certify your
spin as an official spin, you might look into do =ing a remix.
