As much as we would love for all of our blogs to be successful both in the content they carry and the traffic they generate, not all are able to meet our goals all of the time. Despite a strong start, Brand New Classroom has shown a steady decline in the quality of student work we have received — no offense to those whose work we’ve shown lately, it’s just the way it goes. Additionally, the amount of time it takes to prepare each post is not worth the amount of traffic they receive. We love the idea of a forum where students’ identity work can be critiqued but we don’t have the time to make it that place. Maybe someone out there can take the premise we’ve set up and run with it on their own. Many thanks to all the students who have subjected themselves to the open and honest (and sometimes brutal) critiques of our readers during the short 16 months we published.
