Wikipedia: should we use it?

Our students use Wikipedia to research. However it is still largely criticized and even banned by some educators. One day when my students were preparing a presentation about a South American country, they asked me if they could use Wikipedia. Some teachers had actually banned them to use it because according to them it was not accurate enough and nobody checked its accuracy. I was gobsmacked and again had this bubble feeling

This data explains it all and actually proves that Wikipedia is more accurate than any other encyclopedias:

What about you? What do you think about Wikipedia?
