This study investigates the teachers’ perceptions of barriers to using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in secondary schools in India. Even though the progress of ICT for teaching is growing, very few studies address ICT particularly regarding secondary schools in India. This study has reviewed the existing literature pertaining to ICT in secondary schools and has analyzed barrier factors in relation to secondary schools in India. A 10-item questionnaire was administered to 749 secondary school teachers in India. Results from the study shows that lack of funding, lack of ICT integration and lack of connectivity were found to be most critical barriers to the use of ICT in secondary schools. Three barrier-factors were extracted: lack of support, lack of ICT infrastructure and lack of motivation and self belief from factor analysis.
