And even beyond the statistics, most of the former DE's on here have indicated in various ways that for all their hard work, no time with their families, low pay, they generally got treated like, um, dirt. Yes, that's the Scoutlike word for it. I also recall some talk that being in that position tends to wreak a heavy toll on a marriage.
This is just an anecdote and not scientific data, but my district has had 10 or so DE's in the past 15 years, and the BEST one (in the opinion of myself and other unit Scouters who I have spoken with at district events) was a guy who, after however many years in the DE/SDE/DD cycle, decided he needed to have a little more stability and took a position in the Scout Shop in the council office. Some stability, he got caught up in a round of layoffs and found himself, in his late 40s I would estimate, without any job at all. I don't know whether he got a job with another council or not. I do know that our council's chance to give a good man a rest for a few years and then bring him back into the "direct line" (maybe as an FD) is probably gone.
