During a visit to Gringotts Bank, the Potter account manager requested a meeting with Harry. The Goblin asked why he was paying twice the amount of other students attending Hogwarts. Was he getting extra education, better accommodations, etc? Harry didn't know so he asked how much does everything cost for what he was being taught. Misunderstanding Harry, the manager said he would send him all the material within the week. Harry started to receive numerous Hogwarts documents and the cost of education the average person was not meant to see or learn of.
The Challenge is to write a story concerning Harry receiving all this material explaining what is supposed to be taught, qualifications, costs, salaries, and everything you can think of that he shares with all the students. Also, why didn't the non-purebloods receive the student handbook at the beginning of each year, costing them 7 galleons. Kind of expensive for a book you didn't get.
