As as Scouter and as a teacher, I have views on both sides of this.
I'd suggest that the District Advancement committee or Council
Advancement Committee provide a for the recommender to use. Too often
I was asked as a teacher to "write a letter for me" for some
scholarship or award. I wished I had some guidance.
When we drafted our form, we put the Scout oath and law at the top of
the form and then asked the responder to reply in terms of questions
about the candidate living the oath and law in his daily life.
I could supply a copy of our form to anyone interested. I may hove
only a almost final draft because the Council changed a few words and
I don't have their final version in an electronic file.
