Wikischool
By adding Wikipedia links to the School Syllabus, students will refer Wikipedia to discover and gather more and latest information.

And Wikimedia also can negotiate with School administrations and authorities to introduce basic article-editing lessons and courses to primary and secondary schools to distribute free knowledge.

By doing this I think it will help to develop our community and will increase the efficiency of the community.

Project idea[edit]

Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
If someone want 100% accurate, responsible source with timeliness they can't refer a library to waste few more hours to find a single answer to a question... And in internet also hard to find such sources, and Wikipedia is the only such thing provide information with over 100 languages... so Wikipedia will be their one and only destination.
