I think LyX will be fine for your students.  They should be able to
generate documents without ever having to touch a LaTeX command.  

I think it's great you're in a position to introduce your students to
open source software.  I don't know how old your students are, but in
the school district I teach in (and in the community college I taught
in previously), open source software is/was considered the devil's spawn,
mostly due to ignorance.
