  1. What has Rosmah Mansor achieved with hundreds of million of ringgits with her Permata project. That is the trouble with people like her. She is not an educationist but is trying to be clever. Furthermore, why is there no full accounting by the Auditor-General on Permata? –Din Merican

  2. We are all ingrates. Rosmah is trying to raise bolehland’s kids to her level of intelligence and morality, and we begrudge her a few birkins and billions on the side.
    People of her stature are in short supply, and fiendish ambitions even less.
    Treasure this national asset.

  3. Readers of this article must not think that the Oxbridge Universities and private sector schools chipped in to help on this project altruistically. There were loads of public pressure as well as financial incentives before they condescendingly contribute to help; plus they were aware of the positive publicity they gain.

    Nevertheless, this is a ‘minor’ success in narrowing the gaps between the ‘haves’ & ‘have-nots’ in UK.

  4. Go back to basics. Teach our children how to read well, how to count well and how to write well. Now sit down and work out you Education Policy.
