US public education is the reason for the rise of the GOP fascist regime.
Poor-to-absent civic education, reading skills, reasoning, etc. have given the GOP upper hand over hoi-polloi, which is not in full - or almost full - control of the narrative that moves the country to far-right.
Non-public education such as charter or private schools focuses mainly on indoctrinating kids to become god-fearing zombies, among other academic subjects.
I've attempted to enroll my kid in a private school. There was a VERY HEAVY push to join the local church, almost an ultimatum for admittance to that particular school.
And if you are reared as a god-fearing zombie it is much easier to manipulate you with deceit and subterfuge to achieve desired results.
History is full of evidence of how easily people are manipulated by the pretext of faith!
I've found this to be true and powerful representation of current society!

And we all do. Rasie of the Amazon is the evidence of that!
