This is engrained in the culture here. Take responsibility for nothing, get offended by constructive criticism, deny deny deny even when an undeniable truth is put in front of your face, blame someone else.
I am extremely unlikely to give any opinion or advice to a local when asked, especially if the person is asking for advice on a situation that they put themselves into. Good chance they will just get offended, deflect, try to turn it around on me and say I don't understand what it's like to be Filipino.
Best Posts in Thread: THE PHILIPPINE EDUCATION SYSTEM
Perhaps a consideration for some. I have a boy turning 10. I want him to be able to take care of my wife later in life, so a good education is necessary. So we prioritize our limited money and life style to send him to a private school since he was 2 and supplement that with the Kumon math program the last two years. I’ve seen from a few of his classmates, there are some very bright kids. So I believe there is not a heredity IQ problem here, just an extremely bad education system.

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubt while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead. It is difficult only for others. It is the same when you are stupid.
Politicians and diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason.

Interesting and pretty much true from what I've seen.
The last paragraph doesn't ring true, they said Filipinos are intellectually inferior. Possibly they meant academically inferior.
It's a bit shocking that an academic would make such a mistake.
Intelligence and education don't necessarily go hand in hand.
