You know why? Studies show that anybody who goes through those preschools – no matter what their background, no matter how poor, no matter single parent coming out of a family that has real troubles. Guess what? They have a 45% better chance of going all the way through high school  and going beyond high school and getting into no trouble along the way. Because they learn what they know they can do. They learn and gain confidence along the way. And that's what it's all about – Confidence. And you guys get it. I can see it on your faces when I walk through to see you all. There's no a darn thing – and by the way, I don't think it's easy. After this is over, some of you go back to tough circumstances in the neighborhood. Black, white, it doesn't matter, rich, poor – that are in trouble. And so, it's not easy. But, it's a hard transition. But what you're going to do as you break out, as you become successful, you're going to bring a lot of people along with you. And that's what Cedric and I – if I'm president of the United States – that I'm going to spend the bulk of my time making sure there's a path, a path, a path for everybody, everybody to make it. Because, your generation is the most capable generation in the history of the country."5.

I can see it on your faces when I walk through to see you all. And by the way, I don't think it's easy. After this is over, some of you go back to tough circumstances in the neighborhood. Some of you go back to homes like a lot of homes that everybody knows. Black, white, it doesn't matter, rich, poor – that are in trouble. And so, it's not easy. But, it's a hard transition.
