Indoctrination is to teach in such a way as to render alternative opinions, beliefs or solutions unacceptable or less attractive. Education is to teach with attention to academic freedom, a recognition of the importance of rigorous inquiry and the importance of revealing opposing points of view and conflicting evidence. The author emphasizes the importance of education over indoctrination in informing the public and especially in constructing curricula to be used in the common schools relative to nuclear waste management.
