Secondary school English teaching plays a key role in English education in China, while its current status, especially in the countryside, is not as good as we expected and thus innovation in this field becomes in dispensible. This paper analyses a questionnaire research statistics with SPSS 16.0 and tracks down the barriers to innovation in secondary school English teaching in the countryside of China and puts forward some innovative strategies in this field, such as the innovations in management and training programs .
So far, issues involving innovation in teacher training have been studied by education researchers, reformers, and practitioners in the whole world, for example, Lilly  , Cruz, B. , Clapham, M. M. , Xie Anbang , and etc. The word “innovate” can be traced back to the 1400s, where it originated from the word “innovacyon” meaning “renewal” or “new way of doing things”. Innovation has been defined as “the challenging of creativity so as to produce a creative idea and/or product that can and wish to be used” . Specifically, innovation in teaching can involve innovative curricular, instructional, and management strategies that will effectively benefit the classes and may be shared by colleagues.
