Spanish term or phrase: Instituto correccional
Este término se encuentra en la página web del departamento de corrección de Puerto Rico. En una investigación previa entre ''cárcel'' y ''prisión'', se encontró que dicho departamento usa "instituto correccional". Entiendo que lo usan para ofrecer un enfoque distinto y no cargar con el peso que presentan los términos ''cárcel'' y ''prisión''. Ahora bien, cuál podría ser una traducción al inglés que respetara lo que el departamento quiere proyectar con el nombre "instituto correccional"?
