Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has said teachers who refuse younger students access to the site are "bad educators".

In this case I think that he really has his own opinion as well as those he called the "bad educators". But what is really important here is the young students themselves. They should really understand what they're searching for and should be more careful about what they read and found in Wikipedia.

No harm in using Wikipedia, it just matter of choosing the right way of getting information.
