In order to answer the question fully, it would be helpful to know a bit more about your topic. Are you writing about a specific aspect of education (early childhood, middle grades, high school) or are you writing about a specific aspect of education (reading skills, ESL, special education, curriculum development)? There are many different topics within a subject as broad as education. The first thing that you will need to do is determine a topic and a focus for that topic. For example, you might decide to write about the benefits of mainstreaming children with learning disabilities during their elementary years, or, as an opposing viewpoint, the benefits of ESE classroom instruction for children with learning disabilities during their formative years.
Once you have setteld on a single narrow topic and a focus for that topic, then begin your research. Look for valid academic sources (education journals are a good place to start) that support your position on the subject or, if you are writing an informative piece, serve to explain the significace of your topic.
After you have gathered your research, outline the main points that you wish to make and then fill in the supporting details on your outline with evidence, examples, and statistics from your research. Remember to cite each outside reference in the text itself as well as on the reference page. Connect each use of a source with a few ideas of your own as well so that you are not simply collecting research.
Conclude your paper with a restatement of the thesis, then verify that you have a unified, coherent whole.
If you have any specific questions after you have settled on a topic, don't hesitate to ask!
