Map to the Middle Class

Vote on what we should cover next about the path to the middle class

We put your questions to work

Our award-winning series of stories that explains how students are preparing for the jobs of the future has taken us around the country. We’ve reported on how high schoolers in a New England factory town are trying to leave poverty behind; how college students in Texas are preparing to work in the burgeoning wind industry; and how apprenticeships may offer a low-cost way to prepare people for decent-paying jobs.

We recently asked you for questions you wanted us to answer on paths to the middle class. You came through with many excellent submissions, and we’re now putting three of those questions to a vote. Help us decide what our writers should report on next!

Voting ends Nov. 5.
