First of all Welcome to the active listers. Being a 94 Eagle
I hope you add your own two cents and start your own topics.
My way of "dissaprove a scouts advancement a rank level."
would be to take the "X" you describe and help him learn =
Since I don't know the "X" you have to use your judgment.
As ASM for the NP you are at the right place to help the most
as well as keep Scout-Lrs at bay since You are in the Book.
If he refused to learn "X" correctly then I would proceed onward to:
BoR discussion with the scout on this difficulty. =
The BoR can lend new insight to him, the troop, and to you.
This job of the BoR is described but seems seldom used.
Parent/Troop Leader discussion
After the SM or the BoR or ?? then again help him learn it correctly
based upon hopefully a new and more positive set of conditions.
The worst of "X's" is when the boy has a real problem working with
others i.e. the inevitable Scout Spirit rejection. One example would
be a boy who is mean, nasty, and shows real contempt for younger =
scouts. This is an "X" that needs to be addressed rather than passed
on to the next rank sign-off point. If you reject him for this and
help him get on path for Star, Life, and Eagle I applaud you.
YiS, IMHO, and may we all attempt to live the SO, SL, SM, SS
