The policy I would like to promote is that of diversity. OOo is great, but
people should be able to choose between (at least) LaTeX, OOo, LyX, AbiWord,
and KOffice. KOffice is more slick, but less compatible. I think that
students should be exposed to a variety of tools. If I had to force them
into anything, I would (just as Orna said) push LaTeX, which is the best for
the education of CS students.
The differences between the others are minor  for small documents, and for
large documents, all but LaTeX would fail.

My personal policy is:

1. If it one page, give it to a secretary to do.
2. If it is two pages, do it yourself using which ever word processor you
3. If it is 3-10 pages software design document, write it in Google docs.
4. In all other cases, write it in LaTeX.
