As you've no doubt heard, it's scholarship time over at DFA for Netroots Nation. 30 people will be chosen to receive scholarships to NN to mix, mingle, and learn to be better activists.
This year, since NN is (relatively) close to my home, I have decided to apply. I have made this choice because I have become more involved in on line education activism as a member of the Badass Teacher Association. I'm hoping that what I learn at Netroots Nation can help us as educators (All 44,000+ of us and growing) take back education from the corporatists and the privatizers.
Now, because I am a naturally generous person, I cannot in good conscience do this shameless begging for myself only. Fellow Kossack Horace Boothroyd III has also applied for one. And if you vote for me, please vote for him as well.
