Kids barred from college

UK college news:
"The admissions executive is in discussions around whether we should introduction a minimum age of 17 for undergraduates," confirmed Ruth Collier, a spokesperson for admissions to Oxford. "We have been pushed to consider it, not because of concerns about whether it is psychologically healthy for children to study here, but because of child protection laws which have come into play this year for the first time." ...

Children can no longer live in student accommodation, because the university could not carry out a criminal record check on every other undergraduate sharing the same premises.
These child protection laws have gone too far.
