Abstract

Pandemi Covid-19 membuat berbagai bidang lumpuh, pun termasuk Pendidikan.
Pemerintah membuat kebijakan melakukan kegiatan belajar mengajar di rumah melalui
daring, tidak bertatap muka seperti biasanya. Banyak masalah yang muncul dengan adanya
kebijakan tersebut. Misalnya, di Desa Lemakmakmur masih sedikit siswa yang mempunyai
gawai sehingga tidak dapat mengikuti kbm melalui daring. Akhirnya hal tersebut
berpengaruh terhadap angka putus sekolah. Berdasarkan data yang penulis dapatkan bahwa
di Desa Lemah Makmur masih banyak anak-anak yang mengalami putus sekolah yang
dilatarbelakangi oleh rendahnya kesadaran masyarakat akan pentingnya pendidikan dan
faktor ekonomi yang rendah. Pada tahun 2019 anak putus sekolah di desa tersebut
mencapai 31 siswa, angka tersebut merupakan akumulasi dari angka putus sekolah
SD,SMP, dan SMA. Kemudian angka putus sekolah akibat panedmi Covid-19 mengalami
peningkatan signifikan dalam 1 tahun belakangan. Hal tersebut tentu perlu menjadi
perhatian pemerintah agar angka putus sekolah bisa ditekan. Pemerintah perlu memikirkan
cara yang lebih jitu dalam menghadapi efek Covid-19 pada dunia Pendidikan.

The Covid-19 pandemic paralyzed various fields, including education. The government
made a policy to conduct teaching and learning activities at home through being brave,
not meeting face to face as usual. Many problems arise with the existence of this policy.
For example, in the village of Lemakmakmur there are still few students who have gadgets
so they cannot follow KBM online. Finally, this affects the dropout rate. Based on the data
that the authors get, in Lemah Makmur Village, there are still many children who have
dropped out of school which is motivated by low public awareness of the importance of
education and low economic factors. In 2019, there were 31 students dropping out of school
in the village, this figure is an accumulation of the dropout rates for SD, SMP, and SMA.
Then the dropout rate due to the Covid-19 pandemic has increased significantly in the past
1 year. This of course needs to pay attention to the government so that the dropout rate is
appropriate. The government needs to take a better way to deal with the effects of Covid-
19 on the world of education.
