Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > Thank you very much for the metadata lecture. How wrong of me to never
 consider storing array meta values as separate meta instances. Finally
 using *_add_meta() makes sense to me :)

 Awesome! :)

 for students?

 I have no idea. If we were going to do this, it should probably be part of
 the existing "Requirement" metabox, or perhaps it would replace it
 altogether. Maybe something like:

 Setting    Member Type
 [optional] Teachers
 [required] Students
 [none]     Foo

 where the part in [brackets] is a dropdown, and the Member Type is a list
 of all member types? This would probably also need a button that'd quickly
 enable "require for all" or "optional for all" or something like that,
 with a single click. You'd also need a row that represents users with *no*
 member types, I guess?

 If any UX mavens have brilliant ideas....
