Late Summer 28 - pop 100
Didn't think I was going to make it, but there was a pop surge at the end.
I also have 13 graves, but my houses, families, children, and students are different. I know I had a number of graves decay.
My problem for the last 4-5 years, despite my previous post, was not enough females. I built a house each time a new laborer was available, and it would be taken by a 17 y/o male and a 13-14 y/o female. I had to build two new schools, one near the area where the new homes were being built, and another more remote one next to the town hall. Each time a female student moved into a house in the new development, I knew she was attending the school in the old town. So I assigned a teacher to the town hall school, closed the other two schools down, then opened them back up and closed the town hall school. This llittle do-si-do insures that every student is attending the school nearest her home.
I don't think I would really have benefited much by having more uneducated. I was constantly looking at that possibility, but it never seemed to make sense. The thing is, you can't pick and choose who leaves school, either you expel all students, or none. That was what stopped me.
