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 than ever is a time to look into the unrepairable damage that comes with an uneducated society.
