“Apocalisse Turchia”: Turkey-Syria Earthquake On 24 World Newspaper Front Pages
Hugo Perrin-Paulus

More than 5,000 people were killed and at least 15,000 injured in southeastern Turkey and over the border in Syria, as a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck in the early hours of Monday near the city of Gaziantep, followed by numerous powerful aftershocks.

Here is a selection of how international newspapers featured the death, devastation and faint hopes of finding survivors, on their front pages Tuesday morning.

How I Made Homeschooling Work For My Mexican Family

Educating children at home is rarely accepted in Mexico, but Global Press Journal reporter Aline Suárez del Real's family has committed to daily experiential learning.

How I Made Homeschooling Work For My Mexican Family

Cosme Damián Peña Suárez del Real and his grandmother, Beatriz Islas, make necklaces and bracelets at their home in Tecámac, Mexico.
