Nikki Thompson is the Executive Director of OneGoal New York, a non-profit committed to ensuring more students of low-income backgrounds attend and graduate from college. Prior to joining OneGoal, Nikki served as a Chief of Staff at the New York City Department of Education. Patrick and Nikki discuss the disparity between the number of low-income students who attend college and those who actually graduate. The conversation turns to an overview of OneGoal's strategy in improving each of those outcomes. The second half of the interview focuses on the purpose of college, costs and benefits, and how effectively and efficiently it achieves what we want it to.
