Rising star in the GOP party Chris Christie sits down tonight with Piers Morgan for the hour, and the two discuss his tough talk regarding education in New Jersey. Morgan mentions a critic who wondered why he sent his kids to private school, when he speaks in favor of public school. "That's none of her business," said Christie. "That's my choice, and my wife's choice. We happen to believe that a religious education is an important part of an overall education for our children...It's not a shot on the public schools. I'm a graduate of the public schools."
He went on to describe why the "liberal" comment bothered him.
Christie said he pays his property tax like everyone else, which goes toward public education. "I don't complain about it, because that's my responsibility as a citizen of my town and of my state," he said. "Every child is my responsibility in this state...That's the kind of liberal, know-nothing thinking that just drives me crazy."
Watch the full interview, with Christie's wife and children as well, tonight at 9pmET/PT.
