As distributions, Debian is upstream of debian-edu, and Debian is
upstream of Ubuntu.
As packages, debian-edu uses the Debian Sugar packages as-is, whereas
Ubuntu recompile them from Debian sources (mildly patched to match their
slightly different needs and policies, and in some cases further local
Debian-edu is working towards becoming a "Debian Pure Blend", which
means it then _is_ (a subsection of) Debian. But even then it is a
different subsection than sugar, so the "upstream" of Ubuntu will still
be Debian, not debian-edu.
Debian developer, also working with debian-edu.
