A promise to do better

The Cedaredge High School newspaper is a journalistic newspaper run by students. In the last issue of Bruin Tracks, we made an error in quality and in facts.
In past years and papers, we at Cedaredge High School have held this newspaper to an incredibly high standard. The high standard of quality articles, quality pictures, turning everything in on time and making sure everything is proofed are the standards in the Cedaredge High School journalism room.
In the last issue, I failed as an editor. I let the standards drop and the results showed in my newspaper. In the last newspaper, we published the most articles in the newspaper so far this year, and we provided the least amount of time to edit the articles and to make everything grammatically and factually correct. The usual time required to create and lay out a newspaper is about a week. On the last edition, we only allowed two days for the production of the paper. This rash decision on our part led us to publish the worst paper of the year.
As the editor, I wrote an article in the last paper and did not conduct the full-length survey needed to write such a powerful article. I apologize for not giving the readers of the Delta County Independent newspaper the best I have to offer. From this point on, Cedaredge High School will produce the best newspaper we can.
