The purpose of the public education system is not education...

... but rather indoctrination.  Witness (thanks to The War on Guns) what happens when a physics teacher tries to actually teach physics:

Every year, physics teacher David Lapp brings his Korean War era M-1 carbine to school, fires a shot into a block of wood and instructs his students to calculate the velocity of the bullet... The rifle demonstration would not even be an issue if an anonymous parent had not complained.
This one strikes close to home for me, because I work in computers -- and one of the major sources of funding for early computer efforts was calculating ballistics.  How are we ever to make great strides in knowledge if whole areas of inquiry are deemed verboten?
