Some parents pull kids from Conn. high school as Ivanka Trump visits

Ivanka Trump presumably realized just that after parents of students at Norwalk High School in CT pulled their kids from class after hearing the first daughter dropped by for a visit on Monday.

The First Daughter's planned visit was kept under wraps for "security" reasons, but many parents were still frustrated that they weren't properly warned about the appearance. "I figure we ought to have had the decision to send our youngster to class or keep them home".

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty also joined Trump at the school.

Trump has been reportedly pushing for more career education in schools nationwide: "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 attractive virtuous angle", she said.

Some parents in Democratic-dominated CT were unhappy with the visit. Daughter was scheduled to meet with students at Norwalk Early College Academy on Norwalk, Connecticut on Monday.

"PTECH schools equip high school students with skills training in * a href="https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/stem?source=embed" target="_blank" data-ft="{"tn":"*N","type":104}" *#STEM and Computer Science, enabling them to thrive in our modern economy", Trump wrote on social media.

Parents say they didn't know that Trump was scheduled to speak to their kids - information they suspect was withheld due to security concerns. And some parents weren't exactly thrilled by her visit.

One parent thanked Trump.

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

"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 lovely virtuous angle", she said, News 12 New Jersey reported. It's something He will never forget.
