Why does the Government turn a deaf ear to so many surveys like these? There is a very, very small but very rich and powerful group of people who are lobbying very hard to abandon the PPSMI. They are the book publishers. They publish school textbooks in Malay. The other group that lobbies strongly against the PPSMI are the Chinese school textbook publishers.
To them if the PPSMI is abandoned, there are big bucks to be made from publishing more books in Malay and Chinese.
