Sure, you can Google your issue and see what comes up (and, indeed, you will want to do this). But here are a few sites that are worth exploring as well -- education-focused sites that provide research and data on the hot topics in education.
From two well-known education publications, this page links to "research-based background essays on important education issues in America. Each page includes links to research citations, to definitions of related education terms, and to relevant stories from the Education Week and Teacher Magazine archives. You'll also find links to pertinent reports, Web sites, and organizations."
An outstanding site to explore the issues in education. The Education Commission of the States was created by states, for states, in 1965, and tracks state policy trends, translates academic research, and provides unbiased advice. Along with this link, you'll also want to explore their Research Studies database.
