A great question in these times of confusion for so many and I humbly submit an opinion for your consideration. Simply stated children are the future standing before us and will at some point take their rightful place for good or bad among society. 
Hopefully much later replacing those who reared them.

The Creator's plan is a balanced natural thus beneficial system for the creation. Simply that a rising generation should be representative and bare some characteristics of their parent's purpose. An example of this would be a tree planted within good soil producing it's own good fruit now, but with seeds for a future time and harvest. (Malachi 2:7)

The enemy plan is; to simply create rebellion via corruption by his willing minions and their ideological fellow travelers appearing as a benign effeminate caring faculty willfully concealing their theology of conquest. Sometimes instructing from within a godless regime by his sentimental Marxists; when you believe there is no God, you will believe anything. (Ezekiel 12:2; Jeremiah 28:16; Isaiah 66:24)

Bottom Line:
History from antiquity is littered with stories of empires that many times began from nothing but rose to such height. Only to be subjugated as they crashed and burned because a generation arose that would not defend what was bequeathed to them by the blood of far better men. The old Testament history of Israel bears witness to this cyclic generational weakness. A generation would rise to power without knowing their God and then suffering for their foolish errors. (Habakkuk 1:5; Micah 3:11)

Currently our government schools and universities [ideological gulags] are preaching diabolical doctrines of crackpot theologies like "gender fluidity" to captive young skulls full of mush. Many of these eternal adolescents are lacking the God given common sense and thus some character of their elders; whining now for "safe space" protection from any harsh realities. (Micah 3:2-3; Isaiah 48:22; 2 Timothy 3:7) 

Don't Know Much About History:
Having been taught incorrectly and lacking the stick time to gather wisdom on this little sphere, they simply do not understand that what is before them now, has been before other generations before them. (Ecclesiastes 1:4; Ecclesiastes 3:15; Ecclesiastes 11:9)

Laboring under a misconception some view themselves as very special creations having an infallibility to arrogantly pontificate on matters they know little or nothing about. Demanding others quickly kneel at their pagan alters or suffer the death knell of soul crushing consequences for any insolence. Ah for mischievous eternal adolescents and their soy boy crusaders, reality has a harsh way of gangster slapping one upside the head; to learn you real good, if your not paying it proper attention. (2 Timothy 3:2-4) 

Consider the "department of education" created on 4 May 1980 nationalizing individual state education systems into one bureaucracy staffed by four thousand mostly life long bureaucrats with a budget of $68 billion annually.

Since it's creation all testing scores across the board have declined as well as everything they've gotten their hands on. The last administration's long rumored weaponization of federal institutions and agencies against those who they were created to serve, now has been revealed. And one thing is very clear; there is a semi-convert war against all education systems that are not in someway controlled by some governmental bureaucracy. Accept a dollar from them and they will tell you what is permitted and how it will be taught. (Habakkuk 1:13)

"A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education." 
Theodore Roosevelt

"To educate a man in mind and not in morals, is to educate a menace to society. " 
Theodore Roosevelt
