Here's an eternal problem, and if we are truly scouters why can't we get along? In the council I am in it seems there is alot of problems between the "paid" and the "volunteers", maybe I'm a bit slow, and have only been a leader for about 3 1/2 years, but what is the deal. Any Ideal on how I might end this rift. It seems to me the only group lossing is the boys. We teach the scout law and it seems we should also live by it. I just returned from PTC and full of vim and vigor, and continuly run into this strife.
Enough for my soap box, has anyone had similar experiences and how can you get changes to take place?
Thanks for you time,
ASM Troop 90/CM Pack 90
A good ole Bobwhite, too.
