How do you feel about educators recommending students use Wikipedia for school work?


The information found at Wikipedia can be contributed by anyone, and over time the site has come under controversy for several incidences of wrongful "facts" being presented. Yet educators very often recommend students visit Wikipedia for source material. How do you feel about this - is recommending Wikipedia a lazy way to teach, or do the benefits outweigh potential misinformation hazards?
