Melania Trump is feuding with an elementary school librarian.
When the First Lady sent Cambridgeport Elementary School ten Dr. Suess books as part of National Read a Book Day, the school's librarian said, "thanks, but no thanks."
She does not like those "racist" books.
She does not like books sent by crooks.
In an open letter called "Dear Mrs. Trump," the school's librarian, Liz Phipps Soeiro, thanked Melania but suggested that her resources be sent to underprivileged communities, rather than the well-funded Cambridge, Mass.:
Cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit are suffering through expansion, privatization, and school “choice” with no interest in outcomes of children, their families, their teachers, and their schools. Are those kids any less deserving of books simply because of circumstances beyond their control? Why not go out of your way to gift books to underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
