In the study, convenience sampling which is one of the purposeful sampling methods was used. In the analysis of the data, content analysis was used in line with the qualitative research design. As a result of the study, the parents expressed that distance education has advantages such as being able to receive/give education everywhere and having an economic structure. They also stated that it has disadvantages such as being a structure which causes losing students and creates difficulties in active use due to inefficient technological infrastructure. In addition, they expressed that distance education increases the parents’ responsibilities and follow-up of their children, makes students asocial since they are removed from school environment and causes students to be disinterested and unwilling towards their lessons, whereas they emphasized that infrastructure support should be given throughout the country to increase the efficiency of distance education.
