Thanks for the feedback. I guess I sound as though I doubt what
being said. I to know what the books say, but I don't always agree with them.
believe that a troop should have the option to set a standard that is worth work
I don't believe that if we question a Scout about his requirements, that we are
way violating his rights or privileges in the BSA. If we take the time to see t
Scout has really learned, then he will have pride in what he has done. If our s
systems were to do this then these same Scouts would be better off.
