Parents pull children out of school for Ivanka Trump visit

This should have been brought to our attention although I do understand security reasons' said parent Karey Fitzgerald.'I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home

Some are saying they deserved to have been told ahead of time and given the opportunity to not allow their children to attend school that day.

Ivanka spent Monday morning at the Norwalk Early College Academy in CT talking about the importance of education in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The Norwalk Early College Academy teaches according to the "P-TECH" model, developed by IBM in 2011, in which students receive a high school diploma, an associate's degree and technical skills all during their four years in high school.

According to a report by News12 CT, some parents who oppose the president's views were unhappy with Trump's surprise visit.

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.

'I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home'.

She explained on Instagram that Pathways in Technology Early College High School gives students the science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science skills needed to "thrive in our modern economy". It was an honor to meet so many bright and talented students!

The first daughter tweeted about her visit but didn't acknowledge the backlash from some parents.

One parent thanked Trump. "Thank you Ivanka", she wrote.

"My son Nicolas Guzman is a NECA student and you talked to him today and he's so excited about it".
