At the very least, Hagrid should have been formally cleared of his
involvement with the COS. and the MoM could have lifted the ban on his
performing magic and presented him with a new wand. Not quite the same
as an un-expulsion, but formal dispensation from the MoM to do magic
would enable him to lawfully learn whatever magic he could (a Wizarding
G.E.D.?) Anti-giant bias probably prevented this (which, if you think
about it, puts the "magical part-humans" even lower on the social food
chain than Muggles...)
Either that or hagrid just didn't bother about it. he really is intrested
more in magical critters then magic.
Hagrid doesn't need to get a new wand, because he still has his old one.
It's hidden in his pink umbrella. He can't admit it, because he wasn't
supposed to have it, but it works just fine.
But I woun't be sureprised if we find out that Hagrid has been learning on
the side. I think he could be one of the people takeing wombats. may be
he is working up the levels during the summer.
He might be; his main problem seems to be forgetting what the spells are.
Despite Malfoy's slander of him in PS/SS, I don't remember seeing him do
a bad spell yet.
Yes, Filch was taking a correspondence course. But I'm skeptical as to
how genuine the course was. It could have been the Wizarding
equivalent of "Make Millions In Real Estate" seminar literature hawked
at 4:00 a.m.
I thought that was obvious; it was very similar to the old Teach Yourself
Piano At Home correspondence courses, complete with the testimonials
about how surprised and envious everyone else would be.
I think it might help wizards that just need a refresher course or are
studying at home. But JKR said that it would not help filch.
Right, because as a squib, Filch has no magical ability at all.
