There was a Python inititive called CP4E, 
Computer Programming for Everyone.  I believe that 
with the proliferation of computers in society that 
everyone should know how to write a computer program. 

Examples of some of Python's successes are in 
research organizations where computer scientists wrote 
the programs to do data analysis for the research 
scientist, now the research scientist can write thier 
own programs using Python and the computer scientist 
can work on bigger issues.

Python is also being used in some schools like Logo 
was, to introduce all students to programming.

Good Luck on your journey.
