That was exactly my line of thinking when I wrote a few blocks back that
the SF school board did an dissservice to the youth of the community in
disassociating themselves from the in-school programs. Besides the Living and Le
arning program, the Career Awareness Exploring, and the traditional Exploring
Posts in many of their schools, there were about 2000 other youth that benefited
from having Scouting during school time in many of the metro intercity areas.
That District worked closely with the school system and with the community
as a whole in developing the program and everyone felt comforable with it.
It was even featured in Scouting magazine a few years back.
Now they are going to set everything back at least a decade.
Jon got pretty upset with me about my summary, but I still say that, personally,
that if we want to change Scouting's attitude toward homosexuality and
bisexually, then we better do it from the inside out rather than from the outsid
e in. We Scouters have too much already to worry about with this issue on top
