About Stossel in the Classroom

The Stossel in the Classroom program is sponsored by the Center for Independent Thought, an IRS 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit educational foundation that serves as the parent foundation for a number of educational activities.

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. (Go to the Streaming Video" tab, above.) The segments from our free DVDs are also available as streaming video on the site.

Stossel in the Classroom is funded entirely by private donations.
