The Educational Decree Number Thirty-One

"Boys and girls are not permitted to be within 8 inches of each other."
—The Decree.[src]

The Educational Decree Number Thirty-One was one of the Educational Decrees created by Dolores Umbridge, then-Hogwarts High Inquisitor. This Educational Decree forbade male students to get closer than eight inches of female students, and vice-versa.[1] Umbridge rather strictly enforced this decree on at least one occasion, using a non-verbal spell of some form to force two students of opposite gender apart.[2]

This seems to have trumped the Educational Decree Number Twenty-Six, which specified the minimum distance between boys and girls to be six inches.
