To start with, I agree he should have been turned down.
But do you think you showed him how to act like a scout at all times, or how to act durning a BOR?
Something seems wrong, if he got to the BOR with that attuuide, he has had a few BOR berore life?
Sounds like he got rubber stamped, just for putting up a front for a couple of minutes. How does this kid act during meetings and campouts?

NO I get off my butt and call him back the very next week why because thats my job. now if a scout that was turned down for ANY rank. and was told that someone would call him back then I think that shows very bad judgement on all parties that was involved. If the kid if he really waqnted to be Eagle or any other rank should have called and asked what he needed the very next day. I am sorry tha a person in charge told the child that he would call him and he needs to be repreimanded very sternly and told he does not need to be involved in any BOR again. why because the person is not interested in any childs scouting and just wanted to get away from the child. I think that when I tell a child that I will do something then I will do it come hell or highwater because if I and I say if I can let a child down because I just wanted to leave. then I as a leader have failed my self, my troop, and a child.

We have explained the whole process to her and the scout however, she still has filled out the Eagle scout application and wrote most of his Eagle project workbook....she said because his handwriting is so bad?
Any advice on how to handle this?
I think the scout should have to write everything.
