As most of us know, the cartoon character was a public school teacher who ignited a passion for learning in her students by taking them on fantastical field trips.

DeVos was photographed alongside Kellyanne Conway, the president's famous counselor who has been derided for her seemingly attention-seeking behaviors as well as for propagating "alternative facts" regarding Trump's inauguration ceremony.
The difference is Ms. Frizzle saw the value in quality public education. https://t.co/28MPS5luG1— Tim Ryan (@TimRyan) October 31, 2017
