Twenty-Plus Years of Exclusion in the Boy Scouts of America: A Simulated Debate on Inclusion in Public and Private Recreation Agencies
Johnson, Corey W.
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v30 n2 2015
This four-day learning activity on the controversy of exclusion of gays and subsequently atheists in Boy Scouting is particularly relevant because it highlights the complexities that surround issues of equality, equity, the provision of leisure services, First Amendment rights, and the implications of court decisions on social justice. This lesson fits nicely at the end of an introductory course, in a management course or legal issues course, or most obviously in a course on diversity.
