All of the above explains my first concern with the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter.

It is presented as an exercise in philanthropy by promoting literacy in school classrooms, but Reading Rainbow is not and has never been a direct promoter of literacy itself.

And Reading Rainbow's format -- whether television episodes or online videos -- is and has always been more suited to leisure than to structured learning.
