From your 60 questions -- thanks to all the contributors -- we've honed the list to four finalists. You will pick the winner.

A couple weeks ago, we launched a new project called Education Lab IQ (short for Interesting Questions). We asked readers what they are curious about when it comes to education in Washington, and to submit those questions to us.

We received more than 60 thoughtful and interesting questions, and we’ve narrowed the list to four finalists we think are timely, relevant and will yield interesting and maybe surprising answers. (Read more here about how the project works.)

Now we’re asking you to cast your vote for which one of the four questions you’d like to see us answer. The question with the most votes will win, and we’ll assign one of our reporters to share the answers they find.

And if reading the questions below inspires more great questions, remember that we’re still accepting questions for future rounds of Education Lab IQ.  You can submit them here.
