  1. Sorry for the disruption

    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.
    Details of how to speed up the DNS cache update on your computer are here: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-flush-your-dns-cache

    No online school Wed. and Thur. No wonder IQ so low here.

    The reference "The IQ of the Philippines is 86" has been debunked many times including on this forum. It is completely baseless. Here is a link debunking it again:


    Taking a couple of days off for a holiday is meaningless. What matters is the total number of school days the students are in school per year. In this regard the total number of days a student is in school here in the Philippines is more than in the US.

    California 180
    Colorado 160
    Philippines 209

    To solve a problem you need to focus on the specifics of the issue, discover the root cause of the weakness and fix it. While it is true that the quality of education here in the Philippines is poor, making baseless claims of the national IQ and implying that the school year is short only displays one's own ignorance.

    Buy some quality workbooks and tutor your child yourself. Probably better for you if hire a local HS student to do the tutoring. This will give your child access to more advance curriculum and also show your child the value you place on education.

    Making baseless claims is not going to help anyone.
