In 1986 Paul Vitz, wrote a book entitled, Censorship: Evidence of bias in our children’s textbooks. Now, Paul Vitz is not some Bible-thumper, he is a professor of psychology at N.Y.U. and for his study he systematically examined some 90 widely used school textbooks. He wanted to answer the question: "Are public school textbooks bias against Christianity?" His study revealed some startling findings. "Religion, family values and certain economic and political positions have been systematically eliminated from children’s textbooks today. For example in a total of 670 stories from elementary readers there was not one reference to represent a positive side of religious life. Other religions were mentioned, but not Christianity. None of the social study books dealing with American social life, though they mention the family as a group of people living together, ever mention the word marriage, husband, wife or wedding. Nor did any of the books represent a woman being a mother or homemaker as a worthy role for women to consider." One of the social study books had 30 pages on the Pilgrims including the 1st Thanksgiving. But children were not told to whom the pilgrims gave thanks.
