Quote :
This course involves the study of Muggles "from a wizarding point of view". There is apparently a need for witches and wizards to learn about Muggle ways and means, if only to ensure they are able to avoid them or blend in. As the class is only mentioned as being taken by Hermione, and for just one year, little is known about its curriculum. In the opening chapter of the final book, Voldemort murders Professor Charity Burbage because she portrays Muggles in a positive light and is opposed to limiting wizardry to only people of pure-blood origins. For the remainder of the academic year covered by Deathly Hallows, the Death Eater Alecto Carrow teaches Muggle Studies. However, her "lessons" (which are made compulsory) mainly describe Muggles and Muggle-borns as subhuman and worthy of persecution.

That was so sad in the beggining of the last book! Did it ever mention the teacher before that chapter? I find it odd that there's a class on....muggles.

I find it out that the wizards know so little about the muggles. You'd figure that they'd at least have met a few since they don't even go to wizarding school until they're 11.

Exactly!! I mean really, its not even like our stuff is hard use, anyways. We put instructions on like, pens. Do they go to muggle school, then? Because they can read and what not, and I doubt all of them can be home schooled. Maybe its just like one of the stupid classes they have for people who need credits but are lazy...like taking spansih one when you speak fluent spanish?

And they use quills, which are harder to use than pens.

I don't know about muggle school, but I would think a few did at least. Seeing as Hogmeade is the only entirely wizarding town, and no one has ever mentioned primary school for wizards.

Do you suppose that wizards just automatically know how to read and write, because they're magic? What about the half-bloods then? Suspect

Well, I would assume most purebloods have hired teachers come to home-school their children and teach them primary school basics like basic reading, writing, and arithmetic. I would also think that purebloods, being aristocratic, would give their boys more primary education than their girls.

Half-blood children probably go to primary school -- or at least that's what I would assume.

And muggle-borns obviously go to primary before Hogwarts.

I just always found it pretty funny that Hermione took Muggle Studies, like she doesn't already know everything about the muggle world. Though, it would be interesting to see muggles from a wizard's point of view. What they think of our customs and such.

Yes, like Carol.
