Brainwashing is an instructional strategy and educational philosophy. Brainwashing maintains that students must achieve a level of brainwashing (i.e. 90% on a brainwashing evaluation test) in prerequisite thought-reform before moving forward to digest subsequent information. If a student does not demonstrate a satisfactory level of brainwashing on the test, they are given additional support in thought-reform, then tested again. This cycle will continue until the student is fully brainwashed.
