Things got a little testy during a town hall meeting in Paterson where Governor Chris Christie duked it out with an unruly parent.

Christie got into a yelling match with someone in the audience over education.

While throwing his support behind a school voucher program, that man kept yelling for Christie to fix the public schools instead.

Christie called it “powerfully discriminatory” to ask urban students to stay in failing schools when they could be given vouchers for private schools.
