This button may refer to the teaching philosophy of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. His motto was “Learning by head, hand, and heart”. He was a Swiss education and social reformer and helped improve literacy in Switzerland in the 18th century. His belief that anyone can learn and everyone has a right to an education led to education becoming more democratic in Europe. His great influence is why he is considered to be the "Father of Modern Education".

Pestalozzi's philosophy was that education should develop one's powers of head, heart and mind and that this would create individuals who knew right from wrong and became responsible citizens.
