The Good and the Bad of a Hogwarts Education
What are the elements of a good education? In what ways did Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry provide a great education? And were there ways Hogwarts failed its students?
I have a college degree, a law degree, and a Masters degree.  For over a decade I created and taught classes for middle school and high school students at a private school, including a semester-long class on "Harry Potter and Philosophy."
This class is designed for students who have already read (and loved!) the Harry Potter books.  Knowledge of the plot is assumed, and if you don't already know how the story ends, there will be spoilers!
Students should have a pen or pencil and paper handy when they watch the video.  There will be times I suggest that they stop the video to write down some of their own ideas on the questions being explored.
