My son´s teacher asked the kids to write down what they ate at home, the week before. My daughters class had to write a text about what parents do in their freetime. 3rd grade, too back then. we(as most parents) were outraged and demanded the papers from the school. We called the cultus ministry, they didn´t react

I don't want to turn my kids into tinfoil hat wearing nut-jobs like me either but, it seems the time has come when we will have to sit them down and talk to them about what it appropriate to tell their teachers about their home lives.
A teacher's job is to teach the kids, not to serve as an investigator digging for dirt against the parents. They certainly shouldn't be digging for dirt unless they have evidence that something is going on.
You can bet I'm going to teach my kids to say "None of your Goddamn business!" when their teachers ask them about things outside of school.

children need to be taught never to discuss private family matters with non family members anyways,
It's a nosy question, completely out of line.
They have other ways to get secrets without outright asking. The fathers day cards they make seem to be more personalized than the mothers days. " List things your dad likes to do" and the child decorates his / her card with private , but usually embarrassing facts about him, some stuff you didn't want known comes out on the cards that are pasted up around the room for all to see.
They have your children 6 hours a day, 5 days a week to mold them into whatever they want.
