Perhaps you could instead have it more like this: they should be raised, not necessarily by government workers but by people who the government chooses, and raised to do jobs that they were tested for? They could be raised off basic teachings that everyone receives, and when they reach a certain age (or year, such as December 12th of their 13 year or something), and then get tested to see what job fits them best. Then they get trained for that job from the point on.
Or you could have them raised by government workers, and redistributed to a job that the government chooses for them.
You should think of multiple ideas first, to be honest. Once you have them, lay them out, and then combine elements you like into one form while getting rid of elements you don't like. I've done it before with some of my stories. I'll take a couple of stories that I wrote, then combine them together with the elements that I like and take out the elements I don't like. I'll usually do it to stories that I no longer want to write, but I still want the story, or aspects of the story.
