In modern history, Kang district education has always been a major concern of the government and scholars. Against the background of Zhao Erfeng’s schooling, Kang District’s women’s education gradually emerged. From the time when the Minister of Sichuan and Yunnan Border Affairs operated Kang District to the construction of Xikang Province,in these decades, Kang District women’s education experienced a tortuous process from prosperity to decline to rise again. There is also a qualitative leap in the background. The development of women’s education has not only promoted the reform of modern Kang district education, cultivated talents for ethnic minority areas, but also changed the stereotyped concept of children in Kang district, that is, they are on duty, laying a foundation for the development of Kang district in all aspects. Most importantly, women’s education in Kang District promoted the emancipation of women’s minds, realized the education method combining skills education and knowledge education, and also cultivated the thoughts of women’s national consciousness and home country in Kang District, and accelerated the prosperity of Kang District.
