    As a high school history teacher, I’m very excited about the possibilities opening up with Wikipedia working with the National Archives. Mr. Ferriero’s attitude toward Wikipedia was? the deciding factor in me changing my own mind about Wikipedia. I still don’t let students use Wikipedia as a source on a paper, but we do use the heck out of it for quick look-ups and starting research (and him being a fellow veteran doesn’t hurt either!).
