LeVar Burton is working to further cement himself as Troy Barnes’ life hero by bringing back Reading Rainbow—both free on the Internet and to classrooms across America. The iconic show, whose theme song is now stuck in your head, ended its run on PBS in 2006. Two years ago, Burton brought Reading Rainbow to the iPad. Now Burton is looking for donations to get Reading Rainbow online and into classrooms. As the Kickstarter page notes, illiteracy is a worrying problem domestically—so the goal is to bring Reading Rainbow to where kids are, which is the Internet. (The term “digital natives” was used. We shall not speak of this again.)
