Awareness of Scouting's history could certainly be higher than it is right
now, but IMO it isn't that bad either, at least not here in the Netherlands.
The activity books for all sections (cubs, scouts etc.) include a chapter on
Scouting history, which I encourage the kids to read. And at cub scout level
there is a "Scouting merit badge", that includes, among other requirements,
to write a small essay about the history of Scouting.
