163: Money and Measures - with Allan Golston, President of US Programs, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

In this amazing episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we have the honor of speaking with Allan Golston, President of US Programs, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation!   Allan speaks very plainly about what must be done within higher education and society to eliminate race, ethnicity, and income as predictors of success for students.  The Gates Foundation looks at creating tangible results economically disadvantaged populations, particularly in the black and latino communities, have a chance at a healthy and productive life - access to quality education and complete a credential that has labor market value.  

 

Allan Golston is the president of the United States Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He leads the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's five areas of strategy, policy and advocacy, and operations of a $600 million domestic program with $3.8 billion portfolio under management: K-12 Education, Post-Secondary Education, Technology Access, Special Initiatives, and Family Homelessness, Early Childhood Learning, and Community Grants in Washington State.
