I really liked CyanogenMod on my OnePlus One - it's got so many customisation options.
Now I have OnePlus Two with OxygenOS - It's rather stripped off in terms of customisations so I'm considering loading CM on it.

If I were to compare them to desktop environments, CM would be KDE, OO would be Unity.

Our school moved to a one-to-one system where every student has a Chromebook. Overall, I think its worked out pretty well. The Chromebooks are secure and fairly simple. I help the IT director a lot, and have some idea of the configuration that the organization can do, and it seems like its almost geared toward schools. They can force-install extensions (mostly tools to block websites and allow teachers to monitor students during school hours), {black,white}list extensions for students to install voluntarily, and a whole lot more.
