I found an interesting short essay from HP Lexicon and it made me think about it even deeper than it goes.
First off; please don't get me wrong.
I love Dumbledore's character, I love Lockhart's character, I love Hogwarts, and I love, love, love the books and the HP universe. I'm just wondering and interested in what, if anything, is behind all this I'm about to discuss.
That if Rowling possibly actually planned this somehow and for some reason many parents in that universe are willing to over-look huge problems and risk their children's lives because of someone's status and previous reputation...OR if this is just unfortunate illogicness because of her coming up with awesome general storylines and interesting characters and not thinking some of them enough throroughly.
So, Hogwarts is supposed to be concidered "the finest wizarding schol" in the world I guess as there's only one in each country. And Dumbledore is supposedly concidered "the best Headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen".
