Exactly. For example, here in Southern California, the Los Angeles Unified School District is so desperate to remove the impediment of parents in the "education" of the children, they provide year round meals, 7 days a week to students throughout the district.

Free Food for Kids and Teens During the Summer
The school year is over, but that doesn't mean children and teens should go hungry if they don't have food at home.
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), under its after-school program "Beyond the Bell," began offering a free breakfast and lunch program this week to all kids ages 1 to 18, regardless if they are LAUSD students or not.
"Many of our students, who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year, cannot maintain that energy during the summer if they do not receive the proper nutrition. That's where we come in, by providing nutritious meals to keep kids nourished and healthy during the long summer months," said LAUSD Food Services Director David Binkle.
More than 100 district schools offer the summer meal services program, which runs until Aug. 1. Among them are Arminta Elementary in North Hollywood, Broadous Elementary in Pacoima, Canoga Park Elementary in Canoga Park, O'Melveny and San Fernando Elementary in San Fernando, Van Nuys Middle School, Sun Valley Middle School and Sylmar High School.
Gee, parents don't even have to worry about feeding their children any more. Add in the clothes program, and what the heck, parents are only needed to provide the DNA for future minions of the Progressive Machine. Well, in fairness, they are also needed as a means to coodinate state provided shelter for the future minions as well.
