By The Hill. Some Connecticut parents reportedly pulled their kids out of school after first daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump made a surprise visit.
Trump on Monday spoke to high school students at the Norwalk Early College Academy, a program at Norwalk High School that allows students to earn a high school diploma and associate’s degree in software engineering.
The visit was kept quiet due to security concerns, according to New Jersey’s News 12, which reported that parents who opposed the president’s views were upset that they did not know about the visit. (Read more from “Angry Parents Pull Kids out of School Over Ivanka Trump Visit” HERE)
Parents Upset Over Ivanka Trump’s Surprise School Visit
By Megan Trimble. A surprise visit from Ivanka Trump has reportedly left some parents of Connecticut high schoolers upset.

Local media reported the impromptu trip left parents upset, saying they should have been notified in advance that Trump would be at the school.

Fitzgerald continued: “I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home.” (Read more from “Parents Upset Over Ivanka Trump’s Surprise School Visit” HERE)
