The group called RSVP examined the impact of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law on Greenville's school district, especially Title I schools. They discovered that nowhere is it more urgent to achieve the goal of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) than at Title I schools, those schools that serve the highest concentrations of children eligible to receive meals at no cost or for a reduced charge. The most important lesson learned from our study is the recognition of the magnitude of the challenges facing our Title I schools. The federal budget does not meet the commitment provided for in NCLB, and the state appears unable to make up the shortfall. It is up to the community as a whole, not just teachers and administrators, but also parents, business leaders and volunteers who care about the next generation of Greenvillians. The group felt that we must all become involved to ensure that indeed no child in Greenville County is left behind.
