LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — An expert will discuss the quality of America's educational system in a speech in Lincoln later this month.

Education researcher Yong Zhao will speak about that at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on March 18.

The University of Oregon associate dean has written more than 100 articles and 20 books about education, and his most-recent book is "Catching Up or Leading the Way: American Education in the Age of Globalization."
