@peachacid:  LOL!!! Those are all valid points and concerns! I’d also like to know if the school is liable for all the students who have been maimed/killed/transfigured during their time at Hogwarts? There must be some crazy legal team to keep the lawsuits from piling up 😉

You don’t need math and language skills when you have a wand!  Haha good points though.

Arithmancy is their math, science would be potions (chemistry) and herbology, and muggle studies would be social studies. I’m not sure about literature. They still had to take their OWLs and NEWTs, and they all passed, so I’m guessing it’s a pretty good education they got there.

Do they assume they know enough of that from whatever education they had before they were 12? Because they can all read and write obviously! Also, there were other classes that our 3 friends didn’t take because there were more profs than the classes they took.

I don’t think it cost too much since the Weasleys were poor, and they were able to send all their children to Hogwarts … unless they had financial aid – of which there was no mention in the books 

 

Edited: Misinterpreted the question! I guess it must be somewhat valuable, considering there is no college education (although I can’t honestly see Hermione being okay with that) and they all go straight to work afterwards. Although a lot of things don’t exist in their world, like technology or nuclear warfare. I think maybe the point is for it to be a starkly different world, because they’re fighting over keeping their world strictly magic and muggle-less. So things like science aren’t necessarily taught because they would be considered muggle stuff. But now that they’re all like peace and yay we won over the pureblood supremacists! – there’s room for change like incorporating more studies into the Hogwarts curriculum, or syncing technology with magic, etc …
