Training Overview

Mulberry Street has changed. Select literature that fosters inclusion and equity.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced that they will stop the publication of six books that contain racist and insensitive imagery, commenting, “These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”

The recognition that And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, and four other Dr. Seuss books are not appropriate is just one action to address a renewed call for diversity and inclusion in schools. Now is the perfect time to focus on evaluating and broadening the instruction in your classroom.

You can select diverse literature to expand students’ views, provide an understanding of others’ experiences, and foster growth. Text selection is a medium for inclusion and equity.
