Why Student email address is mandatory field in v12

Any specific reason why this is made mandatory. In my case, I don’t want it to be mandatory. In v12, we cannot undo this by customizing the form. How to deal with this situation.

A search on ‘user email mandatory’ turns up these posts about why a User email is mandatory - for system design record id purposes.

That constraint requirement applies for Student too I would say.

Thank you for the response. The second thread makes more sense to me. The system manager should be given the option to make this mandatory or not.

We have implemented education module for a kindergarten and the students don’t have email addresses. With email being mandatory and unique we cannot use the email addresses of parents as well. Any ideas ??
