You're right, I don't believe it.

Paranoid people who read between the lines so they can be offended, and then showcased by the biggest stooge of them all....Glenn Beck.

Does "teaching" = "indoctrination"? Explain the difference.

Ummm 'Indoctrination' in the schools (public, private, or parochial) is nothing new.
If the party line bothers you, move your child(ren) to a school that is geared toward your beliefs.

Those that question what 'teaching' is have successfully been indoctrinated.

If that has to be taught to you, you are lost.

IE

Teaching example:

2+2=4

Indoctrination example:

2+2=4, but it's the man's 4 and you get nothing. WHERE'S OUR 4? WHERE'S OUR 4? WHERE'S OUR 4?

Keep them close and teach them nonsense. You going to bother teaching them English? Arithmatic? Algebra? Actual, not propogansistic , History? Some social skills?

I think homeschooling is a treat to the parent's ego and a disservice to the kids.

So, it's wrong to teach kids that they can have a voice in their government?
That's funny.
