Technological problems and changes affect the economic and social status of all people. Technology has changed the world-of-work through innovation and design, and science has changed society through inquiry and discovery. These developments call for a much more manipulative, academic, and technically competent individual, having experiences and a broader understanding as to how it affects them in this complex era in which we all live, work, and play – career and technical and technology education offer valuable foundations for the thousands who will make their livelihood in this ever changing society.
