A petition calling for NBA superstar LeBron James to replace Betsy DeVos as secretary of education has attracted thousands of signatures.
As of early Friday, more than 23,000 people had signed the Care2 petition, asking President Trump to replace DeVos with the Los Angeles Lakers star.
“Its success is undoubtedly due, in part, to the effect of LeBron James as a singular role model in our culture, and his ability to not only be a superstar athlete, but a superstar activist that so many men, women and children admire.”
She assumed office as secretary of education in February 2017.
Unfortunately for Gerber, James signed a four-year contract with the Lakers over the summer.
