Ivanka Trump's visit caused a stir at a CT high school, with some parents reportedly pulling children out of class and complaining little advance notice was given. She applauded the work of the school, which uses a "P-TECH" model developed by IBM, offering students technical skills, a high school diploma and an associate's degree within four years.

The visit was stayed silent because of security worries, as per New Jersey's News 12, which announced that guardians who contradicted the president's perspectives were vexed that they didn't think about the visit.

Karey Fitzgerald, of Norwalk, told News 12 CT, that she thinks parents should have had the choice of whether to send their child to school when Trump was there.

Ivanka Trump's unannounced visit to a Norwalk, Connecticut, high school sparked backlash from some parents who said they were given little information about the trip.

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. She has made visits to charter schools and unique educational schools such as the academy in Norwalk.

Not all parents opposed the visit.

However, her visit, which meant to be educational, turned into a chaos when angry parents showed up to the school and abruptly pulled their children out of class.

An alumna of the academy, Monica Mercuri, also disapproved of Ivanka's visit to her alma mater.

Trump was accompanied by IBM CEO Ginni Rometty. "Hope the diversity of our students and our large immigrant population doesn't scare her away".

"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", Trump said.
