Levar Burton is speaking out about Romney’s attack on the Public Broadcasting Service.
The former Reading Rainbow host told reporters that the Republican presidential candidate would be taking away a valuable education resource for children if he cut funding to PBS.
"I am personally outraged that any serious contender for the White House would target as part of his campaign the children of America in this fashion," Burton said.
"Educators across the country, as well as millions of children and adults know that the programming on PBS has been responsible for significant improvements in education, literacy, math, science and life skills for generations of our children."
