More accurately, textbooks mislead on this point.
(Phys.org)—In quantum entanglement, two particles are correlated in such a way that any action on one of them affects the other even when they are far apart. The traditional methods of measuring the degree of quantum entanglement were originally developed for nonidentical particles, such as between an electron and a proton, or two atoms of different types.

Have you done any reading on Bell's Theorem, and, related, the controversies associated with the "loop holes"? And more importantly, Conway's Free Will Theorem? My brain started to hurt on the last one and so I am giving a rest for now. I thought I understood Bell a long time ago but things changed in the last 20 years. Trying to catch up but it's painful.
