Thousands Sign Petition Demanding LeBron Replace DeVos as Education Secy.

LeBron James

LeBron James is dunking on Betsy DeVos thanks to a new petition demanding that the NBA megastar replace her as Secretary of Education. As of Thursday, more than 12,000 people had signed the online petition, which calls James "a highly respected and extremely influential community advocate and activist who recently opened a state-of-the-art public school for at-risk children." Meanwhile, DeVos is described 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." The petition comes after LeBron unveiled his I Promise school in Akron, Ohio, which gives students free uniforms, bicycles, meals, and future college tuition.
