LeBron James For Secretary Of Education Petition Signed By Over 16,000

LeBron James For Secretary Of Education Petition Signed By Over 16,000

If you could pick from LeBron James or Betsy DeVos to be the nation's secretary of education and those were your candidates, whom would you pick?

"LeBron James is an inspiration to kids all over the country", the petition reads.

Last week, James appeared at a grand opening celebration his I Promise School.

You know LeBron James the National Basketball Association superstar, the philanthropist and soon-to-be Hollywood producer.

Bleacher Report recently noted that his school could eventually cost taxpayers about $8 million per year.

Growing: The Care2 petition has has received thousands of signatures after exceeding its initial goal.

DeVos, meanwhile, recently came under fire for news that one of her family's many yachts appears to have been registered illegally in the Cayman Islands, despite being used in MI. Charters are publicly funded but privately operated and a favorite of DeVos. Many critics argue that she is unqualified for the position and speak negatively of her wealth.

As criticism erupted over the interview, Arpaio told the Arizona Republic that he had been unaware of the publication's views. His campaign issued a statement saying Arpaio couldn't fully understand what Baron Cohen was saying during the interview.

Betsy DeVos was hired without ever setting foot in a public school - and she's taken every opportunity to work against the interests of the children, teachers, and families she has pledged to serve.

The petition has been signed by almost 8,500 people as of 6 a.m. Thursday.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon". He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do.

The petition poses a hypothetical situation in which the public is in charge of hiring a new US secretary of education and they can pick between two candidates - the sports legend James or DeVos.

The petitioner knows it's unlikely that James would renounce his playing career to take on this role, especially under Trump - but noted it was at least worth a try to open the eyes of many who have remained blinded by this administration. 'If that's stupid, I wonder what he'd call Betsy DeVos for doing absolutely nothing for schools and children across America'.

Curry adds that people can't allow Trump to divide them.
