Abstract:
Although the Covid-19 pandemic was primarily a medical emergency, it had far-reaching effects on schools and their students. During the time of the pandemic, the regular schedule of classes had to be put on hold, and students had to adapt to circumstances with which they were not familiar. It is claimed that students suffer adverse consequences as a result of this scenario. Because of this, it's crucial to know how many academic opportunities students lost due to the pandemic. The study moves in this direction by collecting and analyzing teacher perceptions of students' learning losses during the Covid-19 process. The study, conceived as a phenomenology, involved 26 educators from a wide range of institutions, fields, and grade levels. The research utilized a simple and quick sampling strategy. The information was gathered with the help of a semi-structured interview form. Content analysis was performed on the collected data. Academic losses, loss of skill development, psychological losses, loss of equal education, loss of health and safety, and social losses have been revealed as the learning losses experienced by students during the Covid-19 process, as reflected in the opinions of the teachers. It is possible to devise social and cultural activities and educational support programs to make up for the student's social, economic, health, and educational setbacks.
