Hey,

So basically i have a prison with a couple hundred people, several courses running some of them do fine but some of them don't.

If i have none of a specific course running, it'll say (eg) 47 people are interested in this course, so i start one and no one goes to it... so i set as many as i can running to see which security sector the majority of the inmates are in (eg, 1 in each church, minimum, medium and maximum security, for spiritual guidance) and maybe 1 person will go to 1 of the classes.

Am i missing something in game? Or is there a bug that im unaware of?
I've checked the rooms are complete, teachers can get to them, so can inmates and guards sometimes inmates go but only ever 1 or 2 even if theres 50 wanting to go... i dont understand

Idk maybe im just making it way too complicated and i only need 1 church for the whole prison? Any help would be great, cheers!

I've noticed this too. It will say 100 are interested but a lot of prisoners don't ever go, even when all the slots are maxed out and there's plenty of open spaces and seats. I sort of figured they must be working?

I think it might also be that they're taking other classes as well, so they may have to finish those first.
This did actually cross my mind but I can't figure out a way around it, it seems like most classes have this issue so i don't know where they're actually going XD
