Minister of National Education Mohammad Nuh told a press conference on Friday that the production of the books series on President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was entirely the publishers’ initiatives and that the procurement and distribution of the books to some schools in several areas had been carried out according to the existing regulation. Nuh also said that since the SBY books were classified as supplementary materials they may not have direct relevance to school curriculum and syllabus. The SBY books had passed a rigorous selection process held by the ministry’s non-textbook assessment team, which comprise scholars and education experts including Dasim Budimansyah, Yus Rusyana and Yuke R Siregar.
