Education forms the backdrop for nearly every moment of the Harry Potter series. Even though war is at hand and the world is in turmoil, there is still learning taking place, there is still a sense of innocence. However, in this story, we learn that even Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is not safe. In fact, a school is perhaps the most powerful and, therefore, the most dangerous place when war afflicts the Wizarding community. By virtue of being a place of knowledge and learning that has existed for hundreds of years, Hogwarts contains information and ancient magic so powerful and so complex that even Voldemort would do anything to get a piece of the pie.
