I found the display of secondary info hard to look at/scan when crammed under the student's name. I think it would be better to put this info in a separate column and allow the rows to be sorted by that column. It would also be nice to be able to search for that info.
Personally I'm liking having it under the student name, but I completely agree that it also needs to be sortable and searchable on that secondary info.
I agree a way to sort on secondary info is important, for us it is unique and so we can tell between two John Smith's.
