Vote for me here

It's Netroots Nation Scholarship time again.  This time, I've applied. I haven't in the past, because I haven't felt like I've done anything worthy of it.

This year it's different.

I have become a member of the Badass Teacher Association.  As such, I have become quite the on line activist, participating in many of their daily and weekly activities to stop the corporatization of public education, which shamefully is being aided and abetted by our President.

Let's face it, having Arne Duncan in charge of Education policy is like having Joe the Plumber in charge of the American Medical Association.

Anyway, with a scholarship to Netroots Nation, I can help spread the Gospel of the BAT as well as do another important thing:  I can talk up our National March for Education in July, one week after Netroots Nation ends. We will march on the Department of Education and have speeches, skits, and a general good time. The more the better.

Anyway, that's my pitch. Give me a vote and a chance to represent my kids.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
