Here is a wonderful poem that summarizes the main point about childrens education. I love that poem. Sorry I have no time to translate it, and I probably couldn't translate the "spirit" of the poem anyway. Mike, do you know of an English equivalent?

Sind so kleine Hände winzige Finger dran.
Darf man nie drauf schlagen die zerbrechen dann.

Sind so kleine Füße mit so kleinen Zehn.
Darf man nie drauf treten könn sie sonst nicht gehn.

Sind so kleine Ohren scharf und ihr erlaubt
Darf man nie zerbrüllen werden davon taub

Sind so schöne Münder sprechen alles aus
Darf man nie verbieten kommt sonst nichts mehr raus.

Sind so klare Augen die noch alles sehen.
Darf man nie verbinden könn sie nicht verstehen.

Sind so kleine Seelen offen und ganz frei.
Darf man niemals quälen gehn kaputt dabei.

Ist so'n kleines Rückrat sieht man fast noch nicht.
Darf man niemals beugen weil es sonst zerbricht.

Gerade klare Menschen wär'n ein schönes Ziel
Leute ohne Rückrat haben wir schon zuviel.
