Law and the Consumer.
Idleman, Hillis K.
One of eleven modules developed for secondary school consumer education, this document emphasizes the need of the consumer, especially the disadvantaged consumer, to understand the law and the protection it can offer. The material is presented in three columns: understandings (usually formulated as questions followed by commentary), suggested pupil and teacher activities, and sources of information for resources to be used in implementing the suggested activities. Background material is also provided. Areas covered include relationships between the consumer and the law, contracts, sellers' responsibilities, guarantees, responsibillties, credit buying, installment contracts, consumer protection legislation, debts, truth-in-lending, consumer fraud, and sources of aid for the consumer.
