onderwijs


education; the field of education; courses or programmes [collectively]; teaching or instruction; education community; the education sector

In Dutch this term is often used to refer to the entire community or sector of education, as in "Onderwijs was unaniem in zijn verzet tegen de bezuinigingen". In English you must be more specific than this. "The education community unanimously resisted the budget cuts."
