more evidence that parents have limited skill at judging quality of early child education centers

Earlier I highlighted a study that shows parents in Germany and the USA aren’t great at judging the quality of their early child education centers. 

Here is evidence showing the same for Rio de Janeiro.  The vertical axis shows parent evaluation, and the horizontal axis shows an objective measure.  As you can see, parents think all the daycare centers are about the same.
