Default Canon EF 75 - 300mm

I am a newbie, and I have purchased a Canon EOS Rebel T6 with a Canon EF 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 III lens and an EFS 18-55mm lens. I have also been told (not from anyone here) that I should replace the Canon EF 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 III lens with the Canon 55-250 EF-S lens because the the EF lens is a lesser quality lens because it has no image stabilization. Is this a good idea?

The Canon 75-300, in fact, ANYBODY'S 75-300 is a throw-away lens that was originally designed to supplement a kit lens in when manufacturers would sell them as part of a kit along with a reasonably good film SLR. It's usually included free and not worth the price.
