The role of poverty suppression in education is receiving increasing attention. According to the 1995-2017 China Rural Income Grouping Data, this paper uses the World Bank Povcalnet online poverty measurement tool to measure China’s 1995-2017 FGT index including poverty breadth, poverty depth, and poverty intensity, and uses it as an indicator of poverty. The vector error correction model is used to empirically analyze the relationship between education fiscal expenditure and poverty breadth, poverty depth and poverty intensity. The results show that the fiscal expenditure of education has a significant inhibitory effect on the breadth of poverty. However, for the depth of poverty and the intensity of poverty, it has not exerted the inhibitory effect of application. On the contrary, it still has a positive effect on poverty to a certain extent. At the same time, economic growth remains the most important driving force for poverty reduction in China.
