“”Remember, little girl, that one day you must be a German mother.
|—Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf|
Kinder, Küche, Kirche (Children, Kitchen and Church) is a German expression denoting the role of women in society. Allegedly first used by Kaiser Bill (Kaiser Wilhelm II: 1859–1941, reigned 1889-1918), it was also promoted by the Third Reich, although with less emphasis on the "Kirche."
It is remarkably similar to the role recommended (though not demonstrated) by Phyllis Schlafly and, by extension, the Eagle Forum and Conservapedia. It is the antithesis of
modern civilization second-wave feminism and is not espoused [sic] in enlightened societies today.
Today, it is commonplace for women to enter the workforce, but as recently the 1980s, Nancy Reagan was criticized for meddling in public affairs.
“”[Her] school taught her only basic theology—to include, by law, a theology not her own—and homemaking, as well as the rules under which she must live out her life. That last was a part of that theology not her own.

In the German school system, the school day generally runs from 8 a.m. to no later than 2 p.m. with most schools ending their day by 1 p.m. (Elementary schools often let out at 11:30 a.m.). In the past, a number of German schools had no food service, so students had to leave campus to eat.
After all, if you release hordes of hungry Kinder in the early afternoon, it's best that Mutti be waiting at home for them (in the Küche!) so she can fix them their lunch.
