To the editor:
Your children and grandchildren can become millionaires.
A local warehouse club has excellent, fun, bargain-priced paperback books called “Comprehensive Curriculum” (pre-kindergarten through sixth grade) and “Biggest Book of Science” — for English grammar, arithmetic and basic science — to make your children and grandchildren some of America’s smartest kids, from kindergarten through high school, get free college education and become millionaires.
Wealthy people gladly buy these low-cost books for their children and grandchildren.
Many school “honors” programs have low standards in grammar, math and science to “qualify” more students for honors. However, employers are not fooled.
Concerning math, most high-paying college degrees and many non-college jobs require expertise in arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry and calculus.
Without mastery, “honors” is fool’s gold.
A large survey of universities shockingly showed that 70 percent of beginning college freshmen were not even expert at grade-school-level English grammar, arithmetic and basic science.
The “Comprehensive Curriculum” books and “The Biggest Book of Science” will help your children be smarter than most new college freshmen.
Even most American college graduates lack math and science skills.
Don’t be bamboozled by university big shots babbling, “Liberal Arts with business is an invaluable, brilliant, brain-broadening bonanza.”
Poetry, plays, novels, movies, history, philosophy, painting, music, dance, sculpture, journalism and sports are fun, but equal financial poverty for 90 percent of college graduates. Also, many business courses are watered down and worthless to employers.
Political science, psychology, sociology, anthropology and black, Hispanic and women’s studies are also fool’s gold.
However, graduates with math, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, accounting, registered nursing, corporate, patent and real estate law, pharmacy, medical and computer programming skills can easily become millionaires.
Most children love video games and cell phone texting —but fear math and computer programming.
Unfortunately, the relentless, rapid-fire action in video games, the internet and “educational” television fragment your child’s brain, hinder learning and can cause adult poverty.
However, math and computer programming skills quietly unify and strengthen your child’s mind.
Let your preschooler or kindergartner work up to third grade or even higher in the “Comprehensive Curriculum” books.
Many Asians and Europeans start kindergarten at the American third- or fourth-grade level of knowledge.
Low scores by most American students on college entrance tests and international math and science tests indicate that even most American seventh-grade, eighth-grade and high schoolers can greatly profit from learning at home.
Parents and grandparents: refresh your own knowledge with these books. If you study, your children will study too.
Wealthy parents and grandparents study a little bit every day, all their lives.
