Some who shared the sentiment have grown exhausted of DeVos, saying she's "taken every opportunity to work against the interests of the children, teachers, and families she has pledged to serve".

Rebecca G., who created the petition, called the new Lakers star "an inspiration to kids all over the country" who "cares about America's youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential".

The petition has obviously spun out of the news about the I Promise school opened in OH on July 30 by the self-proclaimed "King" of basketball, fanned by flames of the to-and-fro following President Donald Trump's recent remarks about James' intelligence.

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".

Now, thousands are petitioning for LeBron James to take over education in the United States.

Chelsea, Real Madrid agree to Thibaut Courtois deal
Chelsea will always have a special place in my heart. "I find his style and ideas very attractive". If he leaves it's going to be sad for us because he is a great keeper".

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

Referencing his new I Promise school in Akron, the petition lists James as the first candidate.

Such a shift doesn't seem likely, though, especially given the testy relationship between President Trump and James, who will soon produce a Showtime documentary series.

Sign my petition calling for DeVos to be fired and LeBron James to be named as U.S. Secretary of Education! We certainly deserve better! Trump's school settled a lawsuit for $25 million after scamming students out of money and providing them nothing in return.

'So glad the Dems are supporting Betsy Devos Charter School Vouchers now; wonder how many people are aware that cost of the LeBron James school will be passed on to the tax payers?' someone else added.
