  • One of the main themes of the video I hope you get is that this is not about testing the boy. While you tend to liken it to a job interview, it is more closely associated with a a fact-finding meeting, where you are looking to see how the boy is doing, his ambitions inside and outside of scouting, and most importantly, how the program is running, IT IS NOT A RETEST OF THE BOY. Unless there is a technical reason, or something unusual about the situation, boys DO NOT FAIL BOARDS OF REVIEW.
  • THERE IS NOTHING MORE DAMAGING TO THE BOY OR THE PROGRAM THAN TO FAIL A BOY IN THIS SITUATION.
  • As discussed in the video, this is my troop’s board of review form.
