comment Website: Should I use mouse-over effects in buttons and navigational elements? (Touch?!)
The fact that hover does not work on touch devices today does not mean that it will not work on touch devices tomorrow. (See on.aol.com/video/… and dvice.com/archives/2012/03/sonys_new_phone.php ). With all hardware capabilities like hover / multi-touch etc., any design needs to work robustly for users in any device.

comment Is there localization beyond language?
Since writing this answer I have discovered a great resource for comparing cultural dimensions that I thought I'd share here geert-hofstede.com/countries.html . Choose one country then another to get comparison of the two.

comment How to handle multiple prospective users of an account?
Given the new details about the two roles, there may be some additional ways to infer the roles rather than require up front complex interaction. Maybe let them progress as far as possible as unknown user type, and when they select an option that is meant for exclusively Parent or exclusively Student, then at that time you message to them that this action is for (Parent / Student) and they will need to invite someone for the other role. Again, wait until the moment that the decision is relevant and meaningful before forcing it, if possible.
