"While I empathize with your belief, let's put it this way: how would you
fare if your boss decided to retest you on Freshman Algebra,
Into to Sociology, Literary devices used in Call of the Wild,
Astrophysics, or biochemistry (his choice) during each personnel review?"
But a boy who is going for his Eagle has spent a lot of his Scouting
career in leadership positions. As such, he would have been required
to do a lot of teaching to younger scouts. If he can't tie the basic
scout knots or remember basic first aid, how could he have taught them?
I believe that for every rank board of review a question from earlier
requirements should be asked. If the boy could not answer it, I would
not flunk him, but I bet he would be prepared for the next BOR!
