Abstract: Based on A Questionnaire on the Status quo of Primary School Science Education in Xiangxi Prefecture compiled by the authors themselves,this paper investigates the status quo of primary school science education in 14 primary schools in 5 counties (cities) in Xiangxi Prefecture in a way of random sampling.The result of the questionnaire reveals that the rate of professional science teachers in primary schools in Xiangxi Prefecture is comparatively low,and the teaching methods adopted in teaching are old-fashioned;students lack interest and are not well aware of learning science;schools pay little attention to the importance of science learning;and these is not adequate teaching resources.Therefore,in order to change the status quo,science teacher training must be strengthened and teaching staff professionalized,students should be motivated to promote their scientific qualities,the old notions of school management,and teachers’ teaching style should be changed and the school conditions and teaching qualities should be improved.
