Parents Pout Over Ivanka's Surprise Visit To Elementary School

First daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump made a surprise visit to a CT high school - prompting some parents who oppose President Donald Trump's agenda to yank their kids from classes Monday. Though the elementary school students there were given the opportunity of a lifetime to interact with a First Daughter, some of the parents are throwing a fit because they were not given advance notice of her visit.

"This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons", Karey Fitzgerald, of Norwalk said. "I figure we ought to have had the decision to send our youngster to class or keep them home".

Ivanka Trump and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty spoke with a handful of students at the academy.

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.

Here's hoping that, next time, the school gives parents enough warning about controversial visitors...

One parent thanked Trump. It's something He will never forget.
