Stossel: Exposing Students to Free Markets

Stossel in the Classroom offers teachers free videos.

It's school choice week. Many kids don't have choice in where they go to school. The school choice movement is trying to give them that opportunity.

Of course, having choice when it comes to what kids learn is important too.

Many schools teach kids that capitalism hurts people.

So John Stossel started a charity called Stossel in the Classroom. It offers teachers free videos that introduce kids to free market ideas. Students rarely hear about these ideas in school.

Graduates from Queens Technical High School in New York City who watched the videos while they were in high school explained that the videos were different from what they were used to.

"They really opened up my mind to think differently" said Xiomara Inga. Antonio Parada added the videos "changed the way that I viewed the world."
