Betsy DeVos Dressed as Ms Frizzle for Halloween – and People Are Not Having It

“Unlike @BetsyDeVos, Ms. Frizzle supported science in the classroom and actually had a background in education,” tweets Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI)

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos celebrated Halloween by dressing up as the beloved Ms. Frizzle from “The Magic School Bus,” and people on Twitter are not having it.

Ms. Frizzle is the quixotic, fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants teacher who taught a generation about outer space, the human immune system, the difference between reptiles and amphibians and so much more. DeVos has been widely criticized for rolling back protections for students not championing the sciences — the big reasons why her Ms. Frizzle fizzled among many lawmakers and millennials who’ve expressed anger over the costume.

“Betsy DeVos how dare you besmirch the good name and honor of Ms. Frizzle!!!” tweeted The Cut’s senior writer Gabriella Paiella.

“Unlike @BetsyDeVos, Ms. Frizzle supported science in the classroom and actually had a background in education,” tweeted Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI).

“Who can forget the magical episode where Ms Frizzle told them all their programs were being shut down?” noted physicist Matt Largo.
