Fans Petition for LeBron James to Replace Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education

Could LeBron James join Donald Trump’s cabinet? Crazier things have happened. Just days after POTUS insulted James’ intelligence, thousands of fans have signed a petition demanding the NBA star replace Betsy DeVos as secretary of education. The petition was drafted by Rebecca G. and has received more than 6,500 signatures as of Wednesday night.

Rebecca describes DeVos as “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.” While James is lauded as “an inspiration to kids all over the country. He’s shown he cares about America’s youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential.”
