Whenever I play a game, I'm normally in very good standing with the Intellectual faction. I build a high school and a college and supply them with ample faculty. I supply housing near the schools (which I believe the "False Theory of Education" thread proved is not much of a factor) and even issue the Education edict. But still, I just can't get very many people to attend high school and college.
My higher-education positions normally fill up pretty quickly. Is the problem that there just aren't many positions for a high-school or college-educated worker open most of the time? Does education attendance rely on job availability??
