I don't agree. The number of trained Cub Scouters did not rise when
the course time was cut in half. I know any number of folks including
my wife, me, every member of my CS WB den and several of the CM's I
serve as ADC who took the day-long class.
I think that someone somewhere decided, incorrectly, that the poor
penetration of CSBLT was time related. I don't think it is. Rather,
I submit, the problem is that we do not sell it well. The SM Basic is
way more than a day and we get registrations for that. Some of the
people who go through it are women who were never trained cub Scouters
and are excellent SM / ASM leaders.
The last word I got from National is that CSBLT is broken but they
don't know how to fix it. Cutting time is the wrong answer, it is
harder to find the correct answer.
Thanks for the thoughts!
