The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 38-39
After telling the authors of some serious problems she saw with full-time day care for young children, a professor of early childhood education at a major university in California added, "but all this is off the record. Politically I can't afford to be against day care." She was concerned about jeopardizing her position and support for her research.
Research in an unpopular area can be thwarted in a number of ways. Delayed publication, funding cuts, peer pressure, and actual threats are all real possibilities in the life of a researcher or academician who publishes or experiments in a politically sensitive area.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 39
So the ivory tower of academia and scientific research is reliably neutral and unbiased only so long as it deals with relatively neutral subjects. While many researchers do try to remain objective and unbiased when working in an unpopular area, the absence of hard scientific proof in the day care debate has led many experts to hide their suspicions or reservations about day care and adopt an officially neutral or even pro-day care position, thereby avoiding the unpleasantness of intense criticism and political pressure.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 39-40
Since many researchers who are currently studying day care are parents who put their own children in day care, this may be a significant limitation on the books and articles these researchers have published. When researchers know a study showing that day care has harmful effects would have disastrous political effects within the university, and additionally know that such a finding would mean that they had personally made a serious mistake in raising their own children, the direction of their research and the types of studies they design may be affected. And, of course, an unbiased interpretation of the results may be very difficult.
