Re: [Scouter_T] Re: Trainer's EDGE
- I don't think you're going wrong anywhere Judy. By all means, if you
think TDC should continue to be taught, teach it. And more power to you
and to your staff. I personally like the TDC material although some is
admittedly 'long in the tooth'. You have the power and right to choose
how to approach things as a council. I'm not saying you have to follow
However, after multiple conversations with the national council, I
simply made a strategic decision to exclusively offer TE in my council.
That decision has been well received and people who would ordinarily
have gone to the TDC have had a great experience with TE. We have
actually added to our training ranks with it unlike with TDC. As long as
national tells me I'm in compliance and not violating policy, and
actually encourages my direction, I'm fine with teaching the Trainers
EDGE. However your council's needs may be different and if that means
doing both TDC and TE, you should do what is needed.
