Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic that has affected every aspect of life worldwide and in Turkey is still heavily taking effect. Formal education, one of the most affected fields, has become one of the most crucial issues of the daily life of the whole society, over 18 million students, their families, and the education community with the decision of the Ministry of National Education to suspend face-to-face education and switch to distance education in March 2020 within the scope of epidemic measures. This study aimed to examine the distance education experiences of Syrian students in line with the opinions of teachers who work at different education levels and have Syrian students in their classes. Data were collected from 16 teachers employing semi-structured interview forms. The research revealed the difficulties experienced by Syrian students under temporary protection during the distance education period from teachers' perspectives.
