"There's a charter school called Mastery in Philadelphia. And in just two years, three of the schools that Mastery has taken over have seen reading and math levels nearly double - in some cases, triple...One school called Pickett went from just 14% of students being proficient in math to almost 70%. Now - and here's the kicker - at the same time academic performance improved, violence dropped by 80% - 80%. And that's no coincidence...Now, if a school like Mastery can do it, every troubled school can do it."

-President Barack Obama
