Caching can be very useful - I've deployed proxy web caches in school situations, and it does wonders for speed when loading the same site on a lab full of computers all at once (and also preventing age-inappropriate content at school).

That's not a security sensitive situation - in cases where security is at issue, the best practice is to make secure pages as lightweight as possible so they'll transfer quickly on slow lines.
