Although postsecondary education is now essential for getting a high-paying job, students from low-income families are underrepresented at every milestone in the educational pipeline. This limits their ability to break the intergenerational transmission of poverty. What educational pathways lead to high-paying careers that may improve social mobility?
CNA Senior Economist Louis Jacobson and CNA Research Analyst Christine Mokher presented new evidence from the State of Florida in a study funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that relates educational achievement to earnings.

Their findings are summarized in a report issued by Hudson Institute and CNA, Pathways to Boosting the Earnings of Low-Income Students by Increasing Their Educational Attainment. The report can be found here.
