Dolores Umbridge spearheaded the creation of educational decrees like this one during the 1995 to 1996 Hogwarts school year. They were supposedly issued to address what the Ministry considered to be slipping educational standards. In actuality, they were a means of stripping Albus Dumbledore of his authority as Headmaster and controlling what students were allowed to do and be taught.
