Good video, but I don't think anyone is blaming Wikipedia for for-profit online education and charter schools eating into public education budgets. It's mostly the diminished tax base, due to people's lack of understanding that the peak of the Laffer curve is about 84%, and corporate tax abuses which have made public funding of anything a farce.

Obama has been hanging out with Bill and Melinda Gates , and other persons who really care about education. Their consensus seems to be that all those people who said that a high student-to-teacher ratio was harmful were wrong, and that we can really think about getting rid of a lot of those teachers and replacing them with on-line instruction. With increasing emphasis on drill-and-grill and other regressive educational techniques, does this not put Wikipedia in more significant role as an educational [ahem] resource?
Yep... but Wikipedia may be taken as a unregulated site &/or unreliable.
