Abstract

On 6 February 2023, two major earthquakes, first in Pazarcık district of Kahramanmaraş with a magnitude of 7.7 and then in Elbistan district with a magnitude of 7.6, shook Turkey. The magnitude of the earthquakes, their successive occurrence and climatic conditions increased the magnitude of the disaster. The consequences of these two earthquakes will continue to have an impact in the long term. The fact that these events are one of the biggest natural disasters in the world in the last century has led to the common opinion that we are facing the biggest natural disaster in the history of the Republic. The earthquakes directly or indirectly affected 11 provinces, namely Adana, Adıyaman, Diyarbakır, Elazığ, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kahramanmaraş, Kilis, Malatya, Osmaniye and Şanlıurfa. While some of these provinces had major destruction, others had local destruction and all 11 provinces were included in the evaluation. Especially formal education was severely affected by such a devastation. Because thousands of buildings were destroyed or damaged as a result of the earthquake. It is likely that schools are among these buildings. Considering that a large part of the students and teachers were damaged by the earthquake, and losses of life or property occurred, we can say that educational institutions were also significantly negatively affected by the earthquake. In this context, the aim of the study is to reveal the reflection of the February 6 earthquakes, which deeply affected a large social area in our country, on educational processes. The study is a qualitative research. The study group of the research consists of 20 school administrators. The study group was determined according to the criterion sampling method.  As a criterion, being a school administrator in any of the 11 provinces affected by the earthquake was taken as a criterion. The data of the study were collected with a semi-structured interview form. The data were analyzed by descriptive analysis method. According to the results obtained from the research findings, the February 6 earthquakes caused many negativities on education and training processes, especially forced migration, increased inequality of opportunity in access to education, and depressive disorders such as anxiety and stress overriding academic concerns. Considering these situations, it should be a priority to increase awareness trainings for the continuity of education and training both before and during disasters, and to provide psychological support for psychological recovery in order to normalize life for individuals as soon as possible.
