NY Post, today

NORWALK, Conn. — Parents of students at a Connecticut high school say they were upset when Ivanka Trump made an unannounced visit.

Some parents pulled their children from class on Monday, saying they were troubled they were not told in advance that President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior White House adviser was paying a visit to Norwalk Early College Academy at Norwalk High School.

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

Ivanka Trump and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty spoke with a handful of students at the academy. It runs on a program developed by IBM to allow students to simultaneously earn a high school diploma, associate degree and develop technical skills.

People are such crybabies. When I was a kid, my parents would not have cared if Hitler was coming, there was no way they were going to let me have the pleasure of sitting out of school.

You wonder how some people even have the brain power to find their way home from the grocery store.

Sometimes I think the children of these people have more maturity and have to change their parents diapers when they get home from school.

The quickest way for my siblings and I to get our back sides warmed, was to come up with an excuse to stay home from school. Going to school didn't keep us out of the field when we got home. The ethics instilled in us before we finished high school, led to successful careers for all of us.

it used to be " if you got in trouble at school, you got in trouble at home " . now, if a kid gets in trouble at school, the parents sue the school and try to have the teacher arrested . as you said, what example do parents set when they keep the kids out just because someone they do not like is going to be there?
