According to the Washington Examiner, Ivanka's surprise appearance at Norwalk Early College Academy did not provide time for the parents to keep their children home from school as a means of demonstrating their disapproval of the first daughter and her father.

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.

Trump was joined by IBM CEO Ginni Rometty at Norwalk Early College Academy, a program at Norwalk High School where students simultaneously complete their high school work while studying software engineering and pursuing associate's degrees.

Some parents pulled their children from class on when they found out about the December 18 visit, reports the Daily Mail.

"This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons", parent Karey Fitzgerald told News 12.

Norwalk Federation of Teachers President Mary Yordon explained to the Daily Mail that teachers weren't privy to the visit, and when they arrived at school, they were shocked by the increased security.

Norwalk Early College Academy (NECA) was launched in 2014, becoming the first school in CT to allow high school students to earn a high school diploma and an associate's degree.

"Only one parent withdrew their student for the school day Monday after hearing of the visit".

An alumna of the academy, Monica Mercuri, also disapproved of Ivanka's visit to her alma mater. "Thank you Ivanka", she wrote. "Hope the diversity of our students and our large immigrant population doesn't scare her away!" It was an honor to meet so many bright and talented students!

"To see the passion and enthusiasm for bringing real life experienced through internship creates this really attractive virtuous angle", she said.
