收容 = custody custodial residential ?
we are talking about \'reform school\'\'Borstal\' that kind of idea. I visited this type of special school in Beijing as a foreign student in the 80s, I seem to remember.

[From 外研社:汉英词典:

收容 = take in,accept,house eg 收容伤员 take in wounded soldier 收容难民 house refugees
收容所 = collecting post eg 难民收容所 = refugee camp

as well as 劳教 you have 劳改 (= short for 劳动改造 reform (of criminals) through labour)

can confirm 劳教 = short for 劳动教养 (= reeducation (of juvenile delinquents etc) through labour ]
