I've wondered the same thing through out this discussion. How do the young
folks in the programs feel about being coed. I'll ask the boys in my troop.
How 'bout others doing the same. E-mail me with the results by April 5 and
I'll post the results. Please include the following information.
Organization (BSA, GSUSA, Campfire ....), Country, Number yes/no votes.
Please phrase the question: "Would you prefer for this troop/post/... to be
co-ed or single sex?"
I don't feel a poll of children as to their opinion as to what's best for
them is the only input for a final answer. Children have this way of
being ... well, childish. They also show great wisdom sometimes.
