Why German Preschoolers Will Beat Our Preschoolers

On my walk to the train station in Rodelheim, I pass a German preschool and its playground. Surprisingly, there are few typical playground fixtures, such as swings or slides. Instead, there is an obstacle course with short walls, pipes, etc. And (this caught my attention), a log. Yes, a large diameter, 15-foot log. Maybe it's a team-building exercise--"Come, mein children, we must move the log over to there!"

So, ja, sadly, our preschoolers are doomed in the new global market.
