Mencius is another great educator after Confucius. In Mencius's thought, education is the central task and the fundamental plan. He hopes to achieve the goal of getting the most eminent talents in the world and educating them. His educational theory constitutes the cornerstone of moral education theory in our country. By studying Mencius's educational Ideology, I hope to provide some new enlightenment for the development of education in the background of new era.


Mencius, education, enlightenmen
