MINISTRY SEEKS EDUCATIONAL REFORM
'She's foul enough to be one,' said Harry darkly, and Ron and Hermione nodded vigorously in agreement.
'Well, that's nothing to be ashamed of,' said Fred, who had just arrived at the table with George and Lee Jordan and was sitting down on Harry's right. 'Nothing wrong with a good healthy "P".'
'Jupiter's biggest moon is Ganymede, not Callisto,' she said, pointing over Ron's shoulder at a line in his Astronomy essay, 'and it's lo that's got the volcanoes.'
