Thousands of people have signed a petition supporting the idea of having National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James replace current Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. He's shown he cares about America's youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential.

'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'. The petition will apparently be sent to Mr. Trump after collecting its target number of signatures, which has increased to 13,000 as more people sign.

Bleacher Report recently noted that his school could eventually cost taxpayers about $8 million per year. Charters are publicly funded but privately operated and a favorite of DeVos.

'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.

Melania Trump's Slovenian parents become U.S. citizens
The couple said little, other than Viktor telling a reporter "thank you" when asked how they felt about becoming Americans. Experts estimate those measures, so far resisted by Congress, would cut legal immigration into the USA almost in half.

Trump jabbed James on Twitter on Saturday, calling the new Los Angeles Laker unintelligent after James told CNN's Don Lemon in an interview about his newly opened OH school that Trump uses sports to "divide" Americans.

US First Lady Melania Trump was among those who later supported James, praising him for opening the school and adding that the player "is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation".

"The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his", said Mark Williamson, spokesman for Akron Public Schools district. I like Mike!' Trump tweeted last Friday.

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. The school triggered lawsuits amid accusations of fraud.
