Several angry CT parents took their children out of school this week when they learned Ivanka Trump was making a surprise visit, local media reported. IBM developed the academic model being used in the NECA program.

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.

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

Trump on Monday addressed secondary school understudies at the Norwalk Early College Academy, a program at Norwalk High School that enables understudies to procure a secondary school confirmation and partner's degree in programming building.

But her stint as a West Wing employee in a Donald Trump White House has raised eyebrows about nepotism and questions about a role that lends access to some of the most sensitive information in our government. "Ms. Rometty and Ms. Trump had the opportunity to meet these students and engage in a panel conversation during this visit", the academy wrote in a Facebook post.

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

Not all parents opposed the visit.

Despite the lack of notice, some parents were able to pull their kids from class once they were told of Ivanka's visit. An alumni of the academy, Monica Mercuri, also expressed her disapproval.

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