About SITC

Stossel in the Classroom was created to encourage critical thinking in our schools. By making it easy for teachers to include a fresh perspective in their classrooms, these videos have inspired millions of students to expand their understanding of free markets and of life.

Stossel in the Classroom offers a new DVD free to teachers each school year. The DVDs include video segments from John Stossel's television programs and specials, along with a teacher guide with lesson plans and ideas for complementary activities.

In addition to our free DVDs, we also offer an extensive collection of streaming videos from John Stossel TV shows and specials, which can be browsed by category or searched for by keyword. The segments from our free DVDs are also available to stream.

We expect this year's free DVD to reach at least 11.9 million students!
