Such a school should have at lesat one POC which will accept responsibility
for addressing abuse complaints while they are closed.  If they have to
contract with their usptream to achieve this, so be it.  Really, what is
the likelihood such a school would have a direct ARIN assignment/allocation?

Why should the world live with indefinite periods of abuse?

If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
