Quentin Wright, a Georgia middle school teacher has been arrested after a parent found text messages between him and her son. The messages coordinated times with the student when Wright would be out of the classroom so the student could meet up with a girl and even indicated that he did not have condoms to give them. Wright is now facing four charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and has been fired from his teaching job.

A bus driver was shown throwing a student off the bus in what seemed to be a sudden, tyrannical incident in a video filmed by someone riding the bus. After the school board insisted that he be fired, the bus company released a dashboard video showing that moments before the other video begins, the student who was thrown off the bus hit the driver in the face with a large bag. With this new perspective, the school board has promised an apology to the bus driver.

A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.

His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.

In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.

What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'

As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.
