    With Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children coming out, and being in the start of a new school year, it got me thinking about these private schools for our gifted youngsters. Are they as great as they seem? Or, are you doing a disservice to yourself by forgoing a proper education? And if you had the choice, which one should you choose?

    During one of the Harry Potter sequences, when MatPat mentions that pets are required, they are not, they optional, read the first book more carefully.

    No, about the money for the whole school list, if you read or even watched Half-Blood Prince, you would know that there is a fund for kids at Hogwarts if they don't have any money.

    Ms. Peregrin's *HOME* For Peculiar Children, it's not a school, it's an orphanage, Jacob's grandfather was an orphan, Emma ran away from her abusive father with help from her sister, Bronwyn strangled her horrible uncle, and so on, each of them being orphans due to some reason!

    but if hogwarts is a HIGHSCHOOL then the students must have gone to primary school (even though you learn more maths skills during highschool) also muggles are allowed to attend hogwarts

    I have a idea for you. How about switching it up. Rather than how it is rates as a "regular" school as one that is gear to those that have unquie Changells. Afterall the Disability act have parts that deals with "adeptions {1}" which could mean an all kids with similar Changels{2} { classroom even those that need more supported than their family can gave, that way they can live as "independent {2} as Possible" (e.g. Squid and muggleborn wizard Boarding school in a magical world or Peculiar Children needing hided their changelling for safeness.) That will rule off Harry Potter's School (no classes on the basic living skill to lived in this world).
    1. items or special action to allowed you to keep a job or Home
    2. Those thing that regard special attend- thing that slightly a person for the society (e.g. Autism or Blindness)

  • SoundWaves In Headphones

    I feel like he was kind if harsh on Hogwarts. Let’s be honest, wizard laws probably works at least slightly different from normal laws. So Hogwarts can probably reject Squibs. As far as the X-Men go, he even said it himself on another video that this was Film Theory, not Comic Theory (though that would be awesome!) meaning that comics shouldn’t count
    Still a great video though. Good job, MatPat!

    I’m guessing that before Hogwarts, children are expected to attend “muggle” school until they turn 11, having learned basic skills

    They learn until year 7 so they can read write and do maths also there is a fund for people who can't pay in hogwarts also all the safety problem is because of voldemort it's like blaming a school for a terrorist attacks also they don't accept people without magic because they can't do what's on the curriculum it's like accepting a disabled person for a soccer student loan also sqibs don't pay tax

    My dude I love your vids. But this argument is just flawed in every conceivable way. Squibs can’t go to hogwarts because they cannot do MAGIC. If they were allowed they would feel worse as they would most probably fail all the classes as they can’t to MAGIC...It’s like accepting a bat to do swimming classes. They phisically cannot.

    1)Well since they need to buy books and buy things,i think is obvious hogwarts hs students that are already literated and knows basic mathmatics.
    2)Well you know there are places in the world that beleives in free education you know,not everything need to works as in usa...
    3)i really don't get why you compare with collages if its clear all of that institute are not in that elvle in educaiton (ok hogwairsts last 2 years are,but xavier's is celary a high school in the movies)

    Wizarding kids go through a primary education up until they're ten, which teaches them basic math and reading and stuff like that. You could argue that that's too early to stop learning basic skills, but let's be honest, when has anything YOU learned past fifth grade helped you in the real world?

    sending squibs to hogwarts is a bad idea since they technically can't pass the curriculum bc they can't do any magic. and the ministry just thinks of squibs in the same way they think of muggles (except a little more sensitive and they recognize them as an individual) so in their universe this isn't illegal at all
