In any other country, corruption is a crime. In the Philippines, people rarely are tried and convicted. As a result, it's one of the most dishonest and corrupt countries in the world. Disgraceful, especially with so many Filipinos claiming to be Catholic or Iglesia or Muslim. The Catholic schools and clergy are corrupt too. I had this same problem with bribing teachers in the so-called best Catholic school in the province. And our priest is married with mistresses and has at least 3 children. He also has 2 brand new SUV's and private houses. Where does he get the money? Corruption is totally out of control here!

Readers Rant on "School Teachers Take Bribes"
What a joke Bugle, the absolute best university in the Philippines typically comes in at around 400 in world rankings. That university happens to be the public school, UP Diliman. Many of the private universities are essentially "kanto boy" clubs. Out of a country of almost 100 million people, how many world-renown scientists, doctors, engineers or astronauts can you name that are Philippine citizens. Space cadets and Abu Sayyaf brain surgeons don't count. Corruption robs the Filipino people of the education that they deserve. As has been said before, the enemy of the Filipino is the Filipino.
