What Are The Main Issues Effecting Children At Schools In The Uk Today?

Looking into getting into Theatre in Education, and myself and my partner are just gathering more information on the big issues at schools today.
Obviously there’s the ever presents: Bullying, drugs, alcohol, sex.
Are there are websites or places to go for information? Is it worth trying to arrange meetings with teachers/school governors to get first hand information direct from specific schools?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. By the way this is for secondary schools.
