In the epilogue at the end, we know that they still sort students in hogwarts...do  you think sorting should have been stopped after nineteen years in the epilogue because it creates enmity among the students and builds up stereotypes....or do you think it is a fair division among the students?
I personally cannot decide b/c I  wanted to see Hogwarts as one and sorting stopped but sometimes its fun, so its okay.LOL
What do you guys think?Smile

i think the sorting should still go on.... because your house is a reflection of who you really are... and i think that's important

I disagree with the above posts. Sorting people into different houses creates enmity and pre-conceived notions regarding people of a specific house. It classifies students as "loyal" "brave" "cunning" et al and tends to undermine a quality they may possess that isn't necessarily the trademark of their house - ie. just because someone is in Hufflepuff, doesn't inherently meant that they are dumb or can't be conniving, Death Eaters or courageous. Sorting essentially labels a person, molding the students to think a certain way and that in itself isn't fair. As amusing as the Hat is, it promotes isolationism between the houses (Especially Slytherin and the rest) and creates unnecessary conflicts. I say, feed it to Buckbeak.

I think there SHOULD be sorting, because it is an age-old tradition, and reflect's one's inner personality. It's the students' own fault if there's disunion, not the house's. Plus, the Great Founders created the sorting hat. It just can't be stopped.
