None of the "Educational Software" packages are "mandatory" when
installing the group, i.e. installing a group doesn't necessarily
install all packages that are members of the group. In this case it
installs _none_ of the group member packages.

You can list them with:
yum groupinfo "Educational Software"

and install them by hand, or go to System -> Administration ->
Add/Remove Software and use the PackageKit GUI to add them.
