Proposal talk:Enable school usage and acceptance (done)

From Strategic Planning

An interesting proposal but...

Realistically speaking, it will never happen. As long as people are able to submit information without citations and there isn't a resource of qualified/reputable academics that can check the quality, verifiability, and accuracy of every reference used throughout Wikipedia, it will never be considered a reliable resource inside of schools (especially in higher education). -Hooliganb 03:35, 25 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

This looks to be the wrong way round. Claiming reliability should follow the establishing of said reliability. There is a version of Wikipedia for schools, with this a complete piece of fantasy (and maybe this is worse), which suggests that this supposed reliability is a long way off, and perhaps unattainable. - Brya 06:20, 26 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Perhaps not for higher education - but we have a school version WereSpielChequers 17:08, 5 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:09, 3 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]
