Okay, whether you like public schools or not they're the textbook definition of propaganda centers. Propaganda is defined as information from the government, official positions and beliefs by the government. Some would say it extends to corporations as well, since they act the same way in the sense of producing information that fits their interests. Because of the complaining about propaganda that was absolute LIES, the definition of propaganda has changed to many ppl to mean LIES from the government in particular, and so maybe it has actually changed altogether, I don't know. But the basic definition was always government information. So when the government coerces everyone not rich enough to go to private school to spend 40 hrs/wk, 9 months/yr, 13 yrs of your life, to go to one location to be told what the govt wants you to know (which is a huge propaganda issue when it comes to history and social studies), ITS PROPAGANDA. Not saying its therefore wrong. But it is propaganda. The word didn't use to have a negative connotation.
