Just read The Minds of Boys, by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens.
It's a discussion of the modern science of brain differences between boys and girls, and recommendations for accomodating the different needs of boys as learners. And one of their recommendations (p 145) boils down to: scouting.
Thanks for the tip. Just ordered it online.
I do think it noteworthy that CBS cut away just as the boys were about to utter the word, "God."
Of course, the Scouts have been under attack for their "duty to God," in the Scout Oath. There is a lot about that at http://www.bsalegal.org.
