Thousands petition for LeBron to take over as U.S. Secretary of Education

Thousands petition for LeBron to take over as U.S. Secretary of Education

The petition has more than 5,000 supporters and is nearing its goal of 6,000 as of Wednesday afternoon.

James celebrated the opening of his "I Promise" public elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio late in July - which will serving around 300 at-risk children and their families - providing them with free lunch, textbooks, classes, tutoring, and free bicycles.

The petition's creator sums up their case with the following message: "I know that's it's unlikely that Lebron James would give up his highly successful career - especially since he has been generous enough to use that influence to be an inspirational community and youth advocate for millions.

The second candidate is Betsy DeVos, a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education, wants to gut protections for women and minorities, and has advocated for teachers to be armed in schools".

She has authored a petition titled "LeBron James For Secretary of Education!" with its intended recipient being none other than President Donald J. Trump.

During a recent conversation with Don Lemon, LeBron had this to say regarding Trump, "What I've noticed over the past few months, he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

Mourinho revealed he will be without six senior players for the game against Leicester. And Mourinho has been tetchy in preseason, demanding signings and not getting them.

'Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon.

Not everyone was applauding James educational endeavors. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do. 'If that's stupid, I wonder what he'd call Betsy DeVos for doing absolutely nothing for schools and children across America'.

While LeBron James is preparing for a new National Basketball Association season with the Los Angeles Lakers, there are plenty of people who would like to see him take his talents to D.C.

'These idiots! He opened a school and is making tax payers pay for the majority if it all!

Curry and James have stuck up for one another and spoken out about Trump over the years. BTW, she has 12 yachts, ' another person pointed out.
