The Raspberry Pi is very popular, but I doubt it is suitable for education: It runs Linux, which is a highly complex piece of software. Beginners should learn from ground up, for example using AVR assembly, then C, first fundamentally understanding the machine, the peripherals, and storage. THEN it may make sense to debate which distribution is the best. Ardurinos are more suitable 'cause closer to the metal.

Excellent news. Anything that would lower the cost of entry is a step forward.
