Stossel in the Classroom

This division of CIT distributes free DVDs and streaming videos from popular TV journalist John Stossel to middle school and high school classrooms across the Americas. We also offer two economics DVDs for high school and college, "Making Economics Come Alive with John Stossel" and "The Power of Markets vs. the Failure of Regulation." Accompanying teacher guides offer ways for teachers to use the videos in their classrooms, as well as suggestions for other activities to supplement the lessons, which challenge conventional wisdom about many of today's issues. We also sponsor an annual student essay contest based on a John Stossel special.

The Roy A. Childs, Jr. Fund for Independent Scholars

This division of CIT issues grants to classical liberal scholars who are not associated with an educational institution or research organization, and who are producing publishable book-length manuscripts, to allow them to see their manuscripts through to publication.
