Harrius Potter

Students may soon be reading the ‘Allegory of the Quidditch Match’ in schools. JK Rowling has seen to it that the Harry Potter series be translated into Latin and Greek, for study in schools and elsewhere. It’s usefulness, I’m not sure of, but I know that if I were an 13-year old boy faced with the choice of reading some crusty old philosopher or Harrius Potter versus Voldemort, I’d choose the latter. Which is not to say that the classics shouldn’t be studied; they should, but perhaps more at the university level when those studying them have perhaps the intellectual capacity to read more of these philosophers.
