On January 30, 2018, in New York City, the Chainsmokers gave a performance at the Hilton and American Express function at the Conrad New York. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are the Chainsmokers musicians. The Chainsmokers have climbed the charts since the early part of 2015 with their hit song Roses, which was in the top 10. They have been singing for two years and have been a hit within the mainstream music scene.
Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are producers and since they became pop stars they began singing. They have other hit songs which include Paris and Something Just Like This. The song, Closer was number one on the charts for 12-weeks. Don’t Let Me Down dance song won a Grammy award.
The Chainsmokers rolled out a new single called Sick Boy. According to Drew Taggart, they had not released any songs for about nine months, which is unusual. According to Drew Taggart, the song Sick Boy is first a new phase for them. As songwriters and singers, they have grown up. According to Drew Taggart, he has the feeling that their music is a representation of their generation, especially when it comes to interacting with different people.
Their music, according to Drew Taggart always says what is happening in their lives and the environment and the world where they live. Sick Boy song and lyrics are very dark. According to Drew Taggart, he is angry and aggravated because people relate to them from what others write and say about them. The things that are written are not really who they are as a person. They channel the focus of their frustrations and reaction to the criticism they experience, in their music. The Chainsmokers think about the way they interact with social media and the world around them.
Originally Pall and DJ Rhett Bixler were a part of the Chainsmokers. In 2012, they re-grouped as an EDM DJ duo managed by Adam Alpert. In 2012, they worked closely with Priyanka Chopra on the song called “Erase” and “The Rookie” in 2013.
There is an important correlation between the growth within a community and the test scores of the children who attend schools in the local area. James Robinson wants parents to understand what it takes to record, analyze and do something about the schools in which they enroll their children. As the founding principal if Rocketship United Academy, it is his business to know all about the relationship between institutions of education and the citizens they serve.
Specifically, his concern and focus is on schools throughout the Tennessee area. Robinson points to Davidson County especially in his warning for better standards and practices regarding student growth. While other results meet the standards of being TNReady, school at the elementary level depend on proficiency scores to determine their progress. This is something of a disservice, as other standards of assessment provide a better look at how well students in a school perform.
The NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) gives pinpoint accurate information. These measures are better than proficiency scores, because they track student scores and progress no matter where the learning starts from. It lets administration and facilitating staff know how far a student has come while receiving an education in a district. This is preferred information over just knowing how close a class of students comes to meeting or beating the national average.
Rocketship Schools have a perfect record of using the MAP tools available to them and praise Metro Nashville Public Schools for doing the same in recent years. The significance of having and using MAP really shines when there are students assessed in a system as falling behind. If they are not brought up to speed as soon as possible, their chances of never testing above average in nationally only ever increases over time.
That is where the Rocketship National Academy comes into play. It has a penchant for taking students in under privileged communities and then teaching them to learn and test at level on par with other students across the board. This academy is known for taking students who are a full grade level behind when compared to their counterparts and educating them until they test a whole grade higher. These are not just the numbers for special cases that walk through the Rocketship doors. On average, students at this academy grow leaps and bounds under proper guidance.
