I'd use something like this,

for x in `getent passwd|grep home_student|cut -d":" -f6`;
do echo rm $x/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/Cache/*;done

Remove the echo once you are sure that the rm command only will remove 
what you intend.

Oh, and there is a millions ways to do this, wait for a few more 
answers, and choose the one you are most comfortable with.
