DollHouse Commission presents: KlairKia





Well we've all been a bad girl either once or twice in our lives and giggle at the mere thought of all the bad things we have kept secret. Here's one lady that's flaunting it, in her new video KlairKia presents "Who's Bad". The irony of the video is that its being presented in the month of the anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. He is the infamous one behind such a title. The video sizzles and is quite enjoyable. Let us know what you think people!

"Waiting on Superman" documentary

Last night I had began to finish the much anticipated documentary detailing failures&obstacles of the US Department of Education. I must say I was appalled by the research that Davis Guggenheim the director had came upon.Guggenheim followed several children across the United States detailing their lives, from being in the unfortnate public school system; to havimg hopes they enter into one of the top charter schools in the nation. I am a product of the NYC public school system before all the changes and games heightened. I had parents who worked their butts off to provide an excellent education for me. I was transfered to district 26 (predominately white) from district 29 which is known to be a predominately Black neighborhood. Yes it was culture shock for me at the mere age of 10 but it opened a whole new world for me learning wise. His documentary test the controversial question is Charter school better than Public Schools? Are the teachers placing their union rules ahead of being a great teacher for our children? Big educators such as Geoffery Canada (Harlem Zone charter school), Michelle Rhee(Controversial D.C. SUPERINTENDENT), and popular advocate for education Bill Gates (creator of Microsoft) are some of the features in the film. What will the future hold for our children, are we as parents that blinded? let me know???(To watch in its full form type in  at youtube.com: waiting for superman part 1/11 to begin)
