TURN-ONS AND TURN-OFFS IN CURRENT HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES : Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor : VIDEOCASSETTES

"Video Flash Cards." Child's Play. $11.95 each. Just what we needed: Another way to take the human element out of education. Now parents don't have to get involved in helping their children learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Simply get one of these four half-hour tapes and let the unseen narrator run the youngsters through their numbers. If your VCR isn't equipped with a freeze-frame button that works at the standard-play speed, however, forget it: The problems pop up at an unrelenting pace that makes no allowances for differences of age or math training among potential viewers. Information: (213) 466-3503.
