However, Michael, NATIONAL is in charge of the advancement requirements, and
while your logic is great, the bottom line is that volunteers at the unit or
district/council level (nor the execs) can not alter the requirements. The
requirements as set by the national committee on advancement (see
advancement guidelines, updated annually) is where these decisions are made.
National quite clearly states the boy does not have to redo any requirements
he has already signed off. As a MB counselor for Env. Science, this is one
of my MAJOR pet peeves, as the boys invariably get the work done at summer
camp where they can simply shortcut the requirements, and then come to me
with one last thing to do.
However, there USED to be a time limit to finish partials (6 months). This
was changed not too many years ago.
