FoolProof Consumer Education
FoolProofme.com offers consumers five financial literacy and consumer education tools. Resources were developed by the FoolProof Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation based on advocacy for consumers, not businesses.
FoolProof For Educators
FoolProof’s Financial Literacy Curriculum is free, web-driven, highly interactive, and self-grading. The middle school and high school curriculum was developed with input from teachers, students, and consumer advocates, not with input from marketers.
It teaches kids to be skeptical of anyone or any company that wants to touch their money or their welfare. Online “modules” teach young people personal financial responsibility and consumer self-defense skills. Classroom activities and individual essay assignments are also included to reinforce module lessons.
FoolProof’s modules take students about 22 45-minute sessions to complete. You can use one or all modules, and modules can be assigned as homework.
