Mom is wanting to show some educational videos in her class the final week, and I recommended FTETTM. It's been awhile since I've viewed it. Are there any episodes with any cussing in it? (even 'minor' cussing)

i think it's mostly fairly clean, but it's been a while since i watched them. there is one episode near the end, apollo 15(?) maybe, with keiran mulroney and the guy who plays the doctor on ER that lost his arm(damn, i love that guy, but can't recall his name). i think he plays pete conrad, who was known for his colorful language, which is displayed prominently at one point.

Was that Peter Scalari? He starred in Bosum Buddies on TV opposite a young Tom Hanks. I think I have this right.

Peter Scolari plays Pete Conrad in the first episode, but only the first episode. He's played by Paul McCrane in Part 7, "That's All There Is" and Conrad's colorful vocabulary is in full display.

In fact, there a joke where Conrad is training, and a group of school children are there to witness his language. There's also nudity in this episode as well.

You might recommend For All Mankind to your Mom. It is available on a Criterion DVD, and I think is a very fine documentary on the Apollo program. Some great extras as well, including a commentary by the director and Gene Cernan (last man on the moon).

You can turn on sort of a subtitle option and get captions as to which of the astronauts and mission control guys are actually talking.

There are also some paintings by Al Bean of his perception of being in space (and some commentary along with his paintings).

A very fine DVD.
