Sometimes they don't/won't print correctly and have to be re-created as a 2007 document and text/images pasted in. However, that problem thankfully doesn't happen too often.
The teaching staff have accepted 2007 quite easily. More easily than we expected to be truthful There are quite a lot of free training materials on the MS web site.
The student conversion issue seems to better since we went to 2007. We do still get a few with MS Works documents which they have created at home, but not too bad.
Hope this helps?

I'd just add DON'T run both versions on the same machine
If people want the same menus either install open office or use
which is great set of demo's where you go to the menu you want in 2003 it shows you where to find it in 2007
