Launched in 1998 by philanthropists Ted Forstmann and John Walton, the Children s Scholarship Fund has offered thousands of low-income children across the country the chance to attend four years of private school, children who would have otherwise never experienced the benefits of affordable private education.

In Giving Children a Chance, prominent journalist Naomi Schaefer Riley chronicles the lives of 10 representative stories of how CSF alumni who because of the educational opportunities afforded them were able to turn less than perfect childhood circumstances into successful lives and careers.

The stories of these children, now grown, and their families are nothing less than inspirational. They are proof that all any of America s children need to achieve their dreams is a chance, and someone to believe in them. They are also a testament to the power of private schools, including many inner-city faith-based schools, and they are proof that given the chance for the right kind of education, anyone can achieve the American dream no matter what or where they come from.
