Education is awash with standardized tests, organization, large-scale bureaucracy, and just about everything else to make sure students are getting a proper lesson. Students are given huge books, learn theoretical knowledge in order to prepare for tests, and that’s that.
But that’s actually the education system of Harry Potter.
In the Order of the Phoenix, Professor Umbridge outlines how her classroom is going to run. Needless to say, it’s a tight ship. It’s scary close to real-world education, to be frank. I saw this clip posted on Reddit a few weeks ago and realized later on just how frighteningly similar it is to modern classrooms.
What do you think? Do you run a classroom like Professor Umbridge in Harry Potter or do you do a little more thinking outside the box?
