Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Viola Davis said she always stresses the importance of education to her daughter.

The "How To Get Away With Murder" star said education is the only thing which can change the world, reported People.

Speaking at the 'EIF Presents: XQ Super School' live event at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, Viola said, "Education is the one thing that connects all of us. It connects us within races, within social economic groups. It's the one connecting force every American has because that's what we want for our children, a great education because we sort of all want our kids to change the world."

The actor said learning is a process which continues till one's death.

"But I stress it in every way. I always say education doesn't stop until you get to your grave. That you're always learning and you're not just learning math and science, you're learning about yourself. You're learning that every time there's a chance to inject an idea into the world that can change it in some way.
