LeVar Burton, host and executive producer of the popular PBS program "Reading Rainbow," visited FOX 26 News at Noon before he was scheduled to deliver the keynote address during the 2016 National Title I Conference in Houston on Thursday, Jan. 28. His speech focused on "Storytelling in the Digital Age."
Burton, a staunch advocate for children's education, shared how a variety of innovative storytelling and digital learning strategies could help eradicate the literacy problem in the U.S.
With help from the crowdfunding digital platform Kickstarter, Burton seeks to resurrect the "Reading Rainbow" program in order to incorporate it into school curricula.
