Whose Constitutional Rights Violated?

Dr. Paul Vitz, under a grant from the National Institute of Education developed impressive documentation on whose constitutional rights are represented in our school history books and whose are not.

His scholarship proved that important facts about the historical contributions and roles of religion in our society, from colonial days to the present, were systematically excluded from social studies textbooks.

It is already a U.S. law that students have a constitutional right to be supplied with history books that include historical facts about blacks and civil rights. Do not Christians likewise have a constitutional right to be provided with history books that tell historical facts about the tremendous role that Christianity played in our country's heritage?
