And, I _really_ feel like a heel having the temerity to proffer an
answer considering I'm now where near the frontline of a K12LTSP network
- let alone teaching ;^)

What I can offer you, gleaned from other posters on this list, is that
you may have major stumbling blocks with some (otherwise) desirable
web-based learning sites because they insist on having made them
compliant with IExplorer only.  Some posters have asked recently about
running IE on Linux just to get over this problem - and then there is
always the hoary old issue of Flash/Shockwave/Sound, which is common on 
lot of these types of sites.  Sooo, rather than just be completely
negative, I'll leave it to those with _actual_ experience to advise
whether what you want is feasible :^)
