Education at Hogwarts was shaken to the core by the murder of Albus P. W. B. Dumbledore the greatest Headmaster Hogwarts had ever seen. He was killed at the age of 116 years by Severus Snape, his friend. On the above video you can watch his scheduled death, memories and mourners.
In education of our time, there are forces both old and new that are killing old time educational institutions and practices. These forces include friendly changes in the digital area and destructive influences of welfare statism, unionists, and prodigal spending that is running governments out of money that could be used for schools.
The happy (real or imagined) days of our Dumbledore Hogwarts schools are over. We cannot go back.
Fawkes reminds us that the future can be new, fresh, and exciting. We can move on from Hogwarts to something completely reborn. To get that done, we need to focus not on rebuilding Hogwarts — but on the concept of a new Fawkes. Is this a negative and frightening path? Quite the contrary. The bright new pheonix of 21st century learning — already stirring and peeping — will provide young wizards of the future with a global commons of knowledge and learning — plus a new generation of teaching Dumbledores who do not have to watch their back for bureaucrats casting negative spells.
