Greenville Public Schools to phase out Chinese immersion program, parents seek to save it

A second-language curriculum that has been utilized to teach students how to read and speak Mandarin for more than a decade at Greenville Public Schools is now scheduled to be phased out of the district, starting with the upcoming school year.
