film distribution in educational markets

I'm a filmmaker with a film, The Trailblazer, about a female counselor in a
wilderness program for troubled teenagers. The film is a narrative feature,
90 minutes long. It follows the character of the counselor and her
experiences in the very aggressive program - she has to decide first, whether
she can fit in with their methods, and second, whether she can live with their
methods. Ultimately she decides it's not for her. The story is based on the
experiences of a woman who worked for such an organization.

The film is not yet completed, and we're fundraising to do more editing. But
we're trying to explore the educational markets to see whether there might be
some interest in a film on this topic. Does anyone have any ideas of
distributors who might be interested in a film of this type?

Any and all help is appreciated!
