They use a level system [3]


Once the detainees are broken they can attend the local high school in Hallsville. Otherwise they are educated by a teacher on the campus. Whether this education is licensed has not been proven [3]


If the detainess dont behave or tries to run away they are issued orange clothes and have to do chores dressed like that [4]
