People tend to take school books as fact, even though foreign and domestic leaders have always used education as indoctrination, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao are prime examples of this. The Bible is an historical work, unchanged for thousands of years, isn't that more reliable than our ever changing educational books?

When it comes to the Bible and many other ancient texts, there are interpretations, such as New International, American Standard, King James... where the original language is interpreted. Then you have paraphrased, a re-writing from an interpretation
And do you consider interpretation's to be "unchanged"? I'm always surprised at how widely different interpretations can be from each other.
Interpretation, would be different because of words variances, such as the word love in Greek has 4 different words for love, in English one word. Some words have no interpretation, and a close word is used.
Text books are just re-written.
Children tend to accept whatever they are taught as truth. That is why indoctrination works so well. Parents, on the other hand should question everything their children are taught, but most don't.
Very true. It's easier to let the school or the church decide what your child is reading, rather than taking an active roll as a parent.
