Published: January 2023   Journal: European Journal of Educational Research

Various types of research are used to uncover the constraints of this phenomenon, but not many researchers use phenomenological studies with parents as participants. Therefore, we used a phenomenological study to describe parents’ views on the constraints, expectations, and approvals regarding the preparation of distance learning modules at the junior high school level (aged 13-15 years). Data collection was carried out using semi-structured interviews. Data were analyzed using NVivo-12-assisted thematic analysis.

The data were collected through observation and semi-structured interviews of five primary school teachers and analyzed using thematic analysis of qualitative data.
