State of Education

The Internet offers a wealth of information on the topic of education. Educators, students, parents and concerned citizens will find copious resources for everything from homework help to comparative statistics.

The Basics

An obvious place to begin is the U.S. Department of Education. A typically expansive government site, it covers virtually every aspect of the national state of education. The site outlines the current administration's priorities and objectives; provides information on student financial assistance; outlines federal educational funding opportunities; provides a wide breadth of research and statistics; links to the department's offices and budget; and lists job opportunities.

Another comprehensive source of educational data is the Educational Resources Information Center. A federally funded information system by the creators of AskERIC, this resource provides a virtual library, lesson plans and a personalized question and answer service.

If you're looking for information on specific schools or school districts, The School Report is the site to visit. You'll find a wide range of information on local educational systems, including school maps, student statistics, the number of computers in the classroom, the percentage of students going to college, average class size and student/teacher ratios. If you are considering an international move, the National Library of Education compares and contrasts U.S. and foreign educational systems.




The National Library of Education is the world's largest federally funded library dedicated solely to education. From its site, educators can search for lesson plans and administrators can find information about the design, construction, maintenance and operation of school buildings. For students and educators, a virtual reference desk addresses general educational issues.

Educational Resources

For those seeking homework help, HomeworkSpot.com links to various resources. Inexpensive downloads (usually less than $2) are available from the Federal Consumer Information Center. Some, including "Helping Your Child Become A Reader," are free. Concerned with your child's study habits? The Department of Education's site on the subject contains helpful advice.

The following sites offer special sections for parents, teachers and students:
