Historical society affecting the future

The Arizona Historical Society, a state funded agency, is having an effect on Arizona’s future, and it is not a good one. In 2010, the AHS gained control of the state owned Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum in Phoenix. At the time, 40,000 children per year were served in various ways by the museum’s K-12 earth science education programs. Memorable learning experiences at the mineral museum inspired some students to pursue careers in science and engineering. In early 2011, the AHS locked the doors, even though it continues to receive approximately a half million dollars of state money a year to operate the museum. The reason for the closure, which violated state statutes, has never been explained.
