Faculty in CEHS have recently been tapped to share their expertise with a broader audience. NET Radio broadcast a story Jan. 30 about the Nebraska Department of Education’s decision to seek a federal waiver from the No Child Left Behind regulations.

Cejda also weighs in on the efficacy of the nation’s education policy and what the K-12 education community has learned from NCLB.
Brent Cejda, professor and chair of Educational Administration, and Michael Jolley, EDAD doctoral student, are the authors of a chapter in the winter 2014 issue of "New Directions for Community Colleges."
