A new MTV documentary by the actress Lauryn Hill shows the importance of teaching children to read, learn and create.
The documentary, called Child Education Studies: Lessons from the Future, takes viewers on a journey from the 1970s to the present day.
“We are teaching them to be creative and creative is what I’m trying to teach them to do,” Hill said in the video.
“I’m trying not to say what the best course of action is or anything like that.
I’m just trying to show what’s good and what’s not good for them.”
Hill said it’s a “truly challenging” journey for her and her family.
The film is part of the MTV-led “Children of Today” series that features educational documentaries, documentaries about children’s health, and stories from parents.
Hill has starred in the series before, but the first one featured children from all walks of life.
