Huang Yanpei was the founder of vocational education in modern China and a pioneer of the rural education movement. He observed the problems in rural education earlier, and based on rural education practice, gradually formed his own rural vocational education ideas, promoting the development of vocational education in rural areas. Huang Yanpei's rural education ideology contains concepts such as "great vocational education doctrine", "education after getting rich", "teaching in designated areas", and "following rural reality", which promote the scientific development of rural education and expand the economic and social functions of rural education. It has important reference value in China's comprehensive implementation of rural revitalization strategy and vigorous development of rural vocational education today.
