Lincoln, NE (AP) - An expert will discuss the quality of America's educational system in a speech in Lincoln later this month.
Many studies and test score comparisons suggest American students are lagging behind their peers in other countries.

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."
