Today was China’s 26th Teacher’s Day, and students across the country attended assemblies at which they expressed their appreciation and gratitude to their teachers.
The Chinese media joined in with cover headlines and photos. A series of images on the front page of Changchun’s City Evening News says “Happy Teacher’s Day” in Chinese sign language.
The paper’s main cover image is a photo of a fire that broke out at several unfinished apartment buildings. Authorities suspect that the fire started when poor welding practices ignited insulation panels.
