Woosley stated that AHS has been contacted by the University of Arizona with plans relating to an expanded UA/AHS mineral museum. Objectives of this collaborative effort include exhibitions, education, and outreach programming around the state. Woosley will work closely with key members of the University to draft a letter to define respective roles for the project.Does the U of A realize that they are proposing a violation of Arizona statutes (Allen amendment to centennial musuem bill)?
Is the U of A really comfortable stealing a mineral museum from K-12 students in Phoenix, especially since Tucson already has one?
Reference: The Allen amendment to Arizona Revised Statute 41-827 was specifically passed to preserve the mineral museum and K-12 education programs in Phoenix.
