Staple Design and Reed Space’s jeffstaple recently sat down with pro skateboarder Billy Rohan for this latest Scholastic Survey episode to discuss his current venture of bringing a legitimate skateboarding class to local New York high schools. As opposed to your stereotypical athletic electives, Rohan is filling a distinct void by teaching the sport’s class and the values it instills. Working hands-on with the youth, the NY native believes that there is an untapped avenue in positively influencing today’s young people.
Education is undoubtedly a foundation of any culture and society. The very success of society hinges on a proper reinforcement that engages the people in acquiring and disseminating knowledge. Sharing a common interest in the continued focus on bringing education and learning to the forefront, HBTV and jeffstaple of Staple Design are partnering to create a new series titled Scholastic Survey which consists of online episodes exploring the importance and necessity of placing our best interests in education. In a time and place where education has been relegated to the back burner amidst budgetary cuts and misdirected spending in the United States, now more then ever is a time to look into the unrepairable damage that comes with an uneducated society.
