Boy Scouts throw out strictest rule in historic change

Boy Scouts throw out strictest rule in historic change

"I think it would be funner because they do a lot of like stuff with the environment", said Girl Scout Makayla McAndrew of Scranton.

Republican National Committeewoman Juliana Bergeron of Keene was a Girl Scout and said she wonders about that organization's future.

It's an organization she says that still plans to be around and serve girls despite the Boy Scouts opening its doors to both genders.

Starting in 2018, girls will be able to join Cub Scout packs, which consist of smaller groups called "Dens".

BSA announced girls will be allowed into the program after getting requests from families and girls.

The Boy Scouts have been considering this change for months, despite strong opposition from the Girls Scouts.

The Boy Scouts of America announced a major policy changes Wednesday.

"I know they were talking about this for a while, but I'm still stunned by it", said Kelley, the father of two Eagle Scouts.

The Boys Scout's website said the decision offers families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children. "But now if I have girls in there, I may not be comfortable to talk to my leader about that", Crump said.

"As we get into STEM programming, as we get into some of our adventure programming that we do", she said.

"There is not as much opportunity for the boys to lead themselves", he said.

Edmunds (concussion), TE Josh Hill (concussion) and CB Sterling Moore (chest) all fully participated in practice. But Palmer is second in the National Football League in passing yards with 1,573 yards.

Becky Burton, chief executive officer of the Fort Worth-based Girl Scouts of Texas-Oklahoma Plains Council, said in a statement that the Girl Scouts has been and will be the best place for girls.

There were also some who voiced their support for the decision, praising the organization for embracing inclusion and allowing girls to join the program. "In the US, 90 percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders, 75 percent of current senators, and 50 percent of female business owners are Girl Scout alumnae".

Today, Girls Scouts helps girls get opportunities in computer coding as well as teaching them about cybersecurity.

"Today's announcement has no effect on girl scouts". "To say they can join [Boy Scouts], for me personally I'm not going to do that".

"It seems more like kind of a quick fix rather than something that is really in the best interest of girls, helping them actually develop and become leaders", Girl Scouts communications director Mike Lopes told Slate in an interview.

There already is some gender overlap in each organization.

Both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have had to adapt to changing times.

Her older brother Michael Flicker is an equally accomplished Boy Scout.

"I have been dreaming of this day for years honestly", said Martin.

The change for Cub Scouts is expected to start next year.
