Looking for a fairly simple database driven web application environment / framework. Thinking of Turbogears.

I need to develop a web application that allows one to input professors and their publications and projects (within various categories), and returns many different views: General (with totals and averages), per professor, per year, per publication category, etc. Graphs would be nice, too. The whole thing should only be visible to logged in users (i.e.: admins or profs).
My first instinct is to roll my own using a framework, and I am learning Turbogears for this as I already know a some Python. However, it has crossed my mind that this is probably a fairly standard type of application, and there might be some more point-and-clicky sort of web-accesible database design environment that could save me a lot of heartache.
Does such a beast exist? Is there some other clearly easier / better choice?
