Bug Description

I managed to use the wrong set of data when importing student, and now have 10k+ students with incorrect passwords. In the old schooltool, I could just use the select all checkbox and mass delete, but that option appears to be gone. As of now, I will just restart on setting up the schoolyear rather then manually change 10,000 entries, but there does need to be an option to mass delete/edit students.

This is actually a bug in regular SchoolTool now too... I think we decided that the invert selection choice was confusing people, but without it you're kind of stuck if you just need to nuke everyone or almost everyone during setup.

So what I'm thinking is that we should add a tab (tertiary navigation) and an option for a second edit form.

Basically: Individual | By Group

"Individual" would be the current flourish implementation. "By Group" would be based on the previous implementation, with a few variations.

I wouldn't want to use batching in "by group" so there is never any confusion about whether you were only adding/deleting the selected members of the current batch or all the members of the group. So this view would not show all people by default -- only the results of a search and/or filter by group.

This would apply to groups and sections, and similar things I may be forgetting at the moment.
