Academic base
Wikipedia is not to much appreciated in my country because teachers say that is not a trustworhty source reference for study and learning. They say that the information here is not 100% true and that is the reason because also students do not appreciate Wikipedia as a serious academic source. My propossal is give that reliability to Wikipedia and make campaigns about it in latin america countries, also a extricted control for editions or some else similar.
