Dale - I am finding the replys very interresting . . .
So far you are the ONLY one that had ANY agreement
with my idea that we should be teaching scouts to
learn SOME of the material on thier own.
All the rest think we have to spoon feed the scouts,
and provide effective "entertainment" to keep them.
My wife - as a teacher - is also seeing some of this
in school. Kids are NOT motivated to learn on their
own. And many don't care about the grades as long
as they are passed to the next grade.
So I guess that to get a badge for just showing up
at the MB midway it what the scouts and parents NOW expect.
As in school - just show up - and get passed on the next
