Building quality education supposes distinguishing conceptually quality of education and quality in education. Both meanings converge in the expression quality education. This work focuses its reflection on the knowledge of education and common activity, which is about and from which the educational relationship is intervened to achieve quality education. There is no quality education, if you don’t work, in the educational relationship, the common activity.Knowledge of education makes it possible to build fields of education with cultural areas, transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into education, adjusting it to the meaning of educating. It is necessary to educate ‘with’ the cultural area and this requires exercising the pedagogical function with competence, establishing an educational relationship in which it is achieved that quality education. Mastery of the function is what makes the pedagogue an expert. In the educational relationship the necessary medium to achieve a quality education is the internal and external common activity. Only by means of common activity it can be achieved the concordance between feelings and educational values; this concordance is a necessary condition to move fromknowledge to educational action, and besides, by adjusting to the meaning of educating, quality education becomes effective, which means to make effective what is valuable in terms of education.
