No Wikipedia?

I know a librarian who forbids her students from ever using Wikipedia at school or at home. This makes me bristle. Everyone uses Wikipedia. Kids need to learn what it is and how to use it. And yet it has all the problems that I addressed in my post earlier today: anonymity, authorlessness, unauthoritativeness. How do I reconcile this?
