4. RELATED CONCEPT a) Mind Control b) This is a good related concept because; people see both education and indoctrination as the same thing. However, when the term indoctrination is singled out, people often think of the words brainwashing, persuading, controlling, etc. One major approach taken is that indoctrination is simply defined as mind control.
