Check out Cal Thomas and Bob Beckel’s Common Ground piece in USA Today to hear what they have to say about CSF’s work. As long time friends on different sides of the political spectrum, Thomas and Beckel find common ground on political and social issues.
Today’s piece, titled “Time to rethink ‘war on poverty’”, focuses on the poverty plaguing millions of Americans across the nation. When the conversation turns toward the topic of education and the urgent need to save kids today in order to prevent future poverty, Thomas brings up educational choice (a subject he and Beckel agree on). He highlights CSF’s work by saying that with the help of a CSF scholarship, “These kids can then get out of failing schools and find a sustainable path to a better life.” Ultimately, he even pledges to donate, and asks Beckel to match his pledge as well. Thank you both for the support!
