Note especially the response by the readers of this SF magazine in the embedded poll---at this time 89% choose sanity---i.e. the best interests of their OWN children.
Hey, if 'it's for the children' is useful as a 'root password to the Constitution', it can be pressed into service by reaction as well. The sanity on this issue, in SF of all places, really is quite extraordinary.
The next big wedge probably ought to be officially tolerating what goes on under the table---for instance, a woman homeschooling and providing day care for 2-3 children besides her own who are from similarly socially situated families. That model wasn't terribly uncommon back during the first Great Depression, and pretty much only fear of regulatory enforcement keeps its pervasiveness down.
