ABSTRACT
The article reports that supporters of public television are hoping the U.S. Senate will restore funding for the U.S. Department of Education's Ready to Learn program, which helps pay for children's shows such as "Reading Rainbow," "Sesame Street," and "Postcards from Buster." The House last month restored $100 million that the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies subcommittee had cut from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, but agreed to eliminate $23 million for the Ready to Learn program.
