"Among all the riches a nation may possess, its people - its human resources, its human capital - is the most important. The value of this human resource depends not on size, however, but on the occupational and intellectual skills its members possess. If our country is to maintain a world-class standard of living, it must hold its own in world marketplace competition. Preparing the "world-class worker", an individual who is highly educated, technologically skilled, highly productive, and as a result, earns high wages is a major goal of Career and Technical Education."  However, "these world-class workers" will require "world-class teachers" to prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century. (Gray & Herr, 1998).
