I’ve always thought that if the wizarding community weren’t so ass-backward, they could start a program where they send recently graduated students or squibs into muggle colleges where they study engineering or physics and after they graduate, they can use that knowledge to help the wizarding community by integrating magic and science in novel ways. Don’t give me any of that “it’s modern technology” BS either, dip pens made of non-feather materials have existed since the 1800s and are Infinitely easier to write with and pens made from reed predate feather based pens.
I used to live abroad and when I moved back home I always thought it was dumb af that essays in school were measured in pages. Like writing three pages doesn’t have to be much work at all if you have big handwriting. Some teachers corrected for this by assigning a three-page essay in a certain font and font size but even that seems like a long way around just demanding an approximate number of words like between 2000-2500.
