Yes, I know (which is why I keep screaming that vouchers won't solve anything...but no one listens.)
One more observation: I went to school before the Dept. of Education existed (yes, I'm that old, LOL) The indoctrination you see today wasn't there. In fact, if there was any indoctrination going on, it would be indoctrination skewed to the belief system that most hold here on RPF: extremely pro-America, mostly pro-white America (I live in the Deep South, formative years in the 1960s), anti-gay America (again, not very progressive Deep South), anti-abortion America, even anti-premarital sex America (or so they believed.) Yet, something broke down because we couldn't have gotten from there to here if we'd stayed the course. There had to be something else -- media, political parties, something...driving the agenda to allow schools to push that agenda, that indoctrination that goes on now. But media can't take our freedoms away, they can only influence. And schools may indoctrinate or educate; but they don't legislate. Only politicians can do that. That's where freedoms erode. The answer is clearly political parties and the monopoly they have on us....in my opinion.
