Thousands Petition for LeBron James to Be Made Secretary of Education

Thousands Petition for LeBron James to Be Made Secretary of Education

Six days after James opened his "I Promise" school in Akron, a public school aimed at educating underserved youth, Curry, along with his wife Ayesha, opened the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation Education Lab at Bushrod Recreation Center in Oakland, a few rooms away from the gym he refurbished in January.

DeVos, who has been United States secretary of education since 2017, was described in the document as "a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education".

Who would you rather? We certainly deserve better!

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

Last month, James gave an interview to CNN's Don Lemon in which he slammed Trump's policy, saying that was using sport to divide America along racial lines. Trump's tweet read, "LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

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.

At first glance the new Note looks like a small update over the Galaxy Note8, but there are a host of meaningful improvements. Once the phone has detected the scene, it optimizes saturation, white balance, brightness and contrast to best suit the scene.

'At least unlike Betsy DeVos, LeBron James supports education, ' Miranda Yaver hit back.

"The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his", said Mark Williamson, spokesman for Akron Public Schools district.

'So Trump called LeBron James "stupid" for opening up a school for children in his hometown, ' Abed A. Ayoub responded.

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. Trump's school settled a lawsuit for $25 million after scamming students out of money and providing them nothing in return. "He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it's their investment, too".

The people have spoken - and they want King James.
