Petition calls for LeBron James to be U.S. Secretary of Education

CNN's Don Lemon has said Donald Trump called him racist

The Care2 petition, which was first posted on Tuesday afternoon, has already garnered more than 9,500 signatures of the 10,000 required.

Describing DeVos as a "scandal-ridden Republican donor", the petition says "we are stuck with an uncaring Education Chief who has fought against teachers and has even expressed disdain for the very department she heads".

Created by Rebecca G. of The Care2 Community project, the petition was launched a week after James opened a new elementary facility in OH called "I Promise School" for at-risk youngsters from under-privileged backgrounds.

You know LeBron James the National Basketball Association superstar, the philanthropist and soon-to-be Hollywood producer. We certainly deserve better!' the petition reads.

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

After James's "I Promise" school, a collaboration between Akron's public schools and James's foundation, opened last week, James spoke of Trump in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon and said the president was using sports "to divide us".

Not everyone was applauding James educational endeavors.

"The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his", said Mark Williamson, spokesman for Akron Public Schools district. 'If that's stupid, I wonder what he'd call Betsy DeVos for doing absolutely nothing for schools and children across America'. Trump's school settled a lawsuit for $25 million after scamming students out of money and providing them nothing in return.

However, there were those that felt James is getting too much credit for his new public school because the majority of the costs will come from taxpayers. This is a tax write off for him, that's it, ' someone tweeted in reference to the viral petition calling for James to replace DeVos.

The people have spoken - and they want King James.
