In the Associated Press’s fall movie preview, GoF director Mike Newell talks about the anarchy of Hogwarts:

“Aside from everything else, these are school stories,” Newell said. “In a middle-of-the-road English education, the teachers are embattled, the school is a very kind of anarchic place and a very funny place, as well. Where two sets of people – one of which is becoming adults and one of which is trying to avoid going back to becoming children – clash.

The anarchy of youth, it is really rich stuff. I loved that. I loved doing the school side of it.”
