Glory Days in the Wink of a Duncan's Eye

Are standardized tests really the best measure of college-and-career readiness?  For the kids who may love a test-based school culture, any change (like that of being forced to enter the test-less real world) might be worthy of a song of lamentation for their "Glory Days":

I had a friend was a big-time test taker
Back in high school
He could double scores earned by you
Make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about was

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a Duncan's eye
Glory days, glory days...
