Harry Potter: 10 Terrible Acts Committed By Hogwarts Professors
Though Hogwarts can be dangerous at times, it’s a place many Harry Potter fans would love to go to. The food, the secret passageways, the grounds, and the various magical subjects are all fascinating.
As for the teachers, most of them are highly accomplished at their respective subjects and receive plenty of admiration from their students and colleagues. Yet there were still a number of Hogwarts professors with questionable morals throughout the series.
Professor Umbridge – for instance – was hated by pretty much everyone (apart from Argus Filch) due to her harsh punishments and lack of respect for the school’s traditions.
