Education Level and Literacy

The wiki describes her as "a rather uneducated witch". However, literacy was exceedingly rare in Britain during her lifetime. The fact that she could write a diary at all demonstrates how well-educated she was for her time. Although her class is unknown, she does not come off as being a member of the nobility in her style of writing and lifestyle, so her education can probably be attributed to Hogwarts. Among Muggles at the time, only the nobility were able to read or write. Eldr-fire (talk) 07:57, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
