By Dr. Lennette A. Coleman, President at FoolProof
FoolProof has been providing one-of-a-kind curriculums for remote and in-person classrooms for over 15 years. We’re the only major financial literacy resource in the world, literally, based on teaching healthy skepticism and critical thinking skills.
FoolProof is peer-to-peer. Kids do all the teaching – we talk to your students, not at your students. Our mission is to give teachers a turnkey financial literacy curriculum that teaches students to think, not react; to question marketers; to fight impulse buying. We teach essential lifelong habits, not just rote money skills.
14,000 teachers and 8,000 schools have signed up—and about 80% of our teacher signups are teacher word-of-mouth. Educators, not marketers, developed our resources and we are very proud of that!
We’re the only curriculums endorsed by the National Association of Consumer Advocates, Consumer Federation of America, Public Citizen, and Fairplay for Kids.
We’re free (really!), web-driven and very turnkey for you.
Moving Financial Literacy Forward
Our curriculums meet state and national financial literacy standards and recommendations for remote, hybrid, and in-person classrooms.
We have separate middle and high school curriculums including “Virtual 2 Reality” exercises, classroom activities, and individual essays.
Our teachers can start using our curriculum in 24 hours by following the Quick Start Guide.
Students register themselves. Or, if you’re in a remote learning environment, you can add new students yourself from your teacher panel.
