Help Choose a Logo

I'm creating a logo and I need some feedback.

Company: Miles Ahead Learning Resources—publisher of reproducible educational curriculum and teacher aids.

Target Market: Teachers, Home Schoolers, Parents.

Age: Pre-school through high school. But this logo will be specifically for Pre-K through Grade 6.

These are quick and dirty, so we're not selecting based on font or color (although if you really like/dislike colors, please tell me),  but on overall look and appeal as a logo that will go in the top left cover corner on all books.

Let me know in the comments section which one(s) you like best and WHY. And if you don't like any of them, that's okay—just tell me the truth.

Thanks. :)

Logo 1: Bee

Logo 2: Marching Kids

Logo 3: Global Kids

Logo 4: Chalkboard*
*What's written on the chalkboard will change depending on the subject of the book. 
Also, it will have multi-cultural heads on the kids.
I also do not care for orange so I'll be changing the colors.
