The cartoon character was much beloved in both books and a TV series that ran during the 90s that taught kids about things like the digestive system and the solar system. Ms. Frizzle always had a new dress to reflect the day’s lesson, and DeVos’ costume is based on a space lesson, complete with a horrendous, bright red-orange wig, which she wore to the White House’s Halloween celebration.
As you can imagine, the internet wasn’t about to put up with DeVos, whose nomination to the position as education secretary was hotly contested and who has been dragged for knowing nothing about education, dressing up as one of the most beloved teachers in all of pop culture.
Check out some of the best “how dare she” reactions from Twitter below.
Stunning: Maggie Hassan (who has a disabled son) realizes that DeVos doesn't know the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act exists. pic.twitter.com/ht2dK9iqL8

Ms. Frizzle is a national treasure and would without a doubt disapprove of Betsy DeVos. https://t.co/qJ6nv3d3nH

Yeah, like Betsy DeVos has ever been anywhere near a school bus.
Only magic she knows is making students' protections disappear.

Betsy DeVos dressing up as Ms. Frizzle is the most disrespectful thing I've ever seen. Someone snatch her wig, she doesn't deserve it. pic.twitter.com/8Dc6HJrJli
