One of the differences between education and indoctrination is that education is subject to scrutiny, to thought, to defending its propositions; with indoctrination, things are just so, they are given as facts and not subject to question. Take FDR's handling of the economy from 1933 on. We are told that Hoover was a lassiez faire capitalist who ruined the economy and FDR's New Deal saved the economy and rescued Capitalism. All total bullshit. FDR Campaigned against Hoover saying he was a Big Government Socialist (funny, right?) The Federal Reserve actually tanked the economy by sucking out 1/3 of the money supply and started to restore it when FDR was inaugurated. The reality is that FDR did not rescue anything, he oversaw an economy worse than the 7 Biblical Lean Years. FDR's Imaginary Economic Greatness is taught as an article of faith, not subject to question. He is given full credit for the economic growth that occurred as the Fed restored the money it stole from the economy but his Soviet style Central planning of the economy lead to 7 1/2 years of 20% unemployment never dipping below 14%. Only abating when Hitler conquered France and USA enter into WWII was all but certain. When there's no thinking involved you can use FDR's as a base for greatness instead of record incompetence and, if not questioned, it's an error that carries through for generations! Educated people see FDR's New Deal was a failure, the indoctrinated take it as an article of Faith that he was great and should be imitated. See the difference?
