I think one of the challenges of teaching CS courses in high school to
folks that don't want to pursue CS as a major is making the course
interesting. With a RAD tool like VB is easy for everyone to throw
together a nice app that can do something they like. With something
like Python that might be harder to do (Tkinter or WxPython
Agile is straightforward in Python. Desktop RAD is straightfoward in *BASIC.
And with the massive IT momentum of VB shops it's cinched.
