About our Curriculums

Our curriculums were created as a free alternative or supplement to the financial literacy resources influenced by business interests.

Both of FoolProof's curriculums were developed by FoolProof's Walter Cronkite Project.

  • Our just-released Consumer Life Skills Curriculum for middle schools. Its messaging is unique, and typical of all FoolProof messaging. Visit www.foolproofmiddleschool.com to see for yourself.
  • Our Consumer Life Skills Curriculum for high schools. Students made 41 million page views of this curriculum during the 2016-17 school year. About 5000 schools are using it. Watch the teacher video here: www.foolproofteacher.com.
