What my teachers at a junior college said about Wikipedia was that it was a fine start off point, but we then had to find other sources that backed it up. This was because Wiki isn't trustworthy as a source, due to the way information is added to a subject.

A back up source had to be a peer reviewed journal of some kind, which establishes credibility of some kind. (And is sometimes later proven false, but still, peer reviewed) On Wikipedia, that doesn't happen, and it's my understanding that anybody can go in and say anything...
