Parents upset over surprise school visit by Ivanka Trump

A surprise school visit by Ivanka Trump drew ire from parents of a Connecticut academy who wanted to yank their children from class to protest the first daughter and White House adviser’s father, President Trump.

“This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons. I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home,” Karey Fitzgerald, a Norwalk Early College Academy parent, told News 12 Connecticut Monday following Ivanka Trump’s appearance.

Some parents were able to pull their kids from class before the visit, according to the report.

Trump, however, seemed unaware or impervious to the complaints.

“Great visit to Norwalk Early College Academy today with @IBM CEO @GinniRometty,” Trump tweeted Monday.

“PTECH schools equip high school students with skills training in #STEM & Computer Science, enabling them to thrive in our modern economy. It was an honor to meet so many bright and talented students!” she added.

Trump is pushing for more focus to be placed by the Trump administration on sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics within the American education system.
