Microsoft published a couple of deployment guides for Windows 8.1 that target IT pros who work in education.
Don’t get turned off by the pictures of photo models mimicking people from education. These PDF texts are not just marketing material and contain useful technical information not only for IT pros working in education.
Each guide has about 20-30 pages and gives a good overview of the corresponding topic. Although the texts are fairly abstract and can therefore only serve as an introduction, you’ll find some links to step-by-step guides at end of the documents.
