Here is my best explanation:

'lead' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'first of children into english class' is the wordplay.
'first of' says to take the initial letters.
'into' is an insertion indicator.
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'class' becomes 'sort' ('sort' can be a synonym of 'class').
The first letter of 'children' is 'c'.
'e'+'sort'='esort'
'c' inserted inside 'esort' is 'ESCORT'.
