When Scouting first started (in England) it was the boys who started it.
BP, who's book inspired this and who organized it, always kept this in
mind. It is the Scouts' program not the Leaders'.
I recognize the difficulty that might occur to Scouters in evaluating the
everyday life of the Scouts whom they serve. However, in most cases, the
daily lives of each Scout are well known to the other Scouts. Thus, this
sounds like a requirement that the Court of Honour (aka Patrol Leaders
Council) is more qualified to deal with than the adult leadership. The
Court of Honor is also more likely to be successful in getting real
developmental change out of a Scout, if in the regular course of the Troop,
the leader hasn't already succeeded.
