This study aims to explore the impact of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) education in primary and secondary schools on students' cultural identity. Through literature review and empirical research, we analyze the role of ICH education in shaping students' cultural values, sense of identity, and awareness of cultural heritage during their school years. The research employs both quantitative and qualitative methods, including surveys and in-depth interviews, to gather multidimensional data. The results indicate that ICH education significantly enhances students' sense of cultural identity and promotes their understanding and respect for traditional culture. The study also identifies challenges and opportunities in the implementation of ICH education, providing insights for future educational practices and policy-making.
