"They teach" : I think it should be [face=SPIonic]paideu/ousin[/face], from [face=SPIonic]paideu/w[/face], just like [face=SPIonic]lu/ousi[/face] from [face=SPIonic]lu/w[/face] (and [face=SPIonic]a)kou/ousi[/face] from[face=SPIonic]a)kou/w[/face]. [face=SPIonic]pai/deusin[/face] would be the substantive [face=SPIonic]pai/deusis[/face], "process or system of education" in the accusative.
