The Education (Chinese: 教育界), formerly called Teaching (Chinese: 教學界) in the colonial period, is a functional constituency in the elections for the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. It was one of the 12 functional constituency seats created for the 1985 Legislative Council election. It corresponds to the Education Subsector and Higher Education Subsector in the Election Committee.

Since 1998, It has been the functional constituency with most registered voters, including registered teachers, principals, managers of schools, full-time academic staff, members of the councils of the universities in Hong Kong and board of governors of the institutes of higher educations.[2] Since its creation it has been held by the Hong Kong Professional Teachers' Union, the largest teachers' union in Hong Kong.
