Since the professional development of rural teachers has seriously affected the quality of rural education, the Chinese government has invested a lot of funds in the personal development program for rural teachers. Under the urban-rural dual economic system, the distribution of educational resources for urban and rural teachers is uneven, and the professional development of rural teachers is seriously affected. The professional development of rural teachers is facing challenges, such as insufficient teacher preparation and training, repetitive teaching content and methods, the management bottleneck of rural teachers, etcetera. This article explores the reasons for the under-developed professional development of rural teachers and proposes corresponding countermeasures.
