  • Parents pull kids from class as Ivanka Trump visits CT school

Earlier this week, it was revealed that at least one parent pulled their student out of Norwalk Early College Academy in Norwalk, CT when they learned that Ivanka Trump would be stopping by for a visit.

According to Norwalk Public Schools Communications Director Brenda Wilcox Williams, Ivanka Trump's visit was made public the day of the event.

Trump and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty spoke to a handful of students at the academy, according to AP.

Parents of students at a CT high school were not happy after learning of an unannounced Ivanka Trump school visit.

"This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons", parent Karey Fitzgerald told News 12 CT.

Trump on Monday addressed secondary school understudies at the Norwalk Early College Academy, a program at Norwalk High School that enables understudies to procure a secondary school confirmation and partner's degree in programming building. Though the elementary school students there were given the opportunity of a lifetime to interact with a First Daughter, some of the parents are throwing a fit because they were not given advance notice of her visit.

Not all parents were opposed to the visit.

Never in a million years would I think Ivanka Trump would come to my high school.

"To see the passion and enthusiasm for bringing real life skills into a classroom environment but then coupling it with real life experience through internship creates this really handsome virtuous angle", she said.

After her trip to the school, Ivanka later tweeted her praise for the staff and "bright, talented students", along with photos from the visit.
