I may be mistaken, but I've interpreted postings about co-ed Scouting in
other countries to indicate that in at least some of those countries, the
national organization has granted local units/groups/sponsors/whatever
the option to be either co-ed or single sex. I'm fairly certain this is
the case in the UK. Would this be feasible here (USA)? If not, why not?
