Questionnaire surveys were conducted twice to find out the present situations of informatization of school education that our country has been promoting, and to clarify promotive and disincentive factors. Questionnaires were sent on February 2004 and December 2005 to 5,000 schools of primary, lower secondary and upper secondary schools, and received a total of 8,190 responses from teachers and 4,731 responses from executive teachers such as principals. Comparing these two survey responses revealed that schools made steady progress to use of IT by teachers during two years, and that promotive and disincentive factors were obtained specifically by the questionnaires to the executive teachers. Five factors were obtained by conducting factor analysis for the answers about disincentive factors, and it was noted that it is important to move ahead on IT environmental considerations in schools and to improve the teacher's teaching capacity of using IT.
