Yes, it is. In Sweden Minecraft has been a mandatory subject in school.

There is zero evidence as it stands currently that Minecraft helps students. This Minecraft thing in Swedish schools is an attempt to engage the children in something they actively care about. By using a program that has less value than sketchup or any other architectural program but ultimately can add a little educational value. I disagree with this coddling to the teenage student that I see in schools these days and Minecraft is one of the biggest propagations of this culture that"s building.

I think most people would agree with you. Minecraft, despite not being all that realistic, is a great educational tool to teach students with.
