    phpbb, MYBB, fluxbb all are real easy to setup. And then there are paid forums as well but free ones do the job well.

    WBB might be a decent choice, even though it hasnt been updated since 2014 (and probably wont get updates in the future)
    But definitely easy to setup and administrate

    Its not as hard as you might think, google 'how to set up a forum on hostwinds/godaddy' or whatever, you should easily find videos to guide you.

    This isn't that hard as far as setting one up. In my experience creating these things is easy but getting traffic is another story. You have a great evergreen niche there in education though, so maybe you can make it work.
