The expectations for knowing where you are going and what you might want to do is being asked at an ever earlier age. Opportunities in some communities for studies in the arts, engineering and technology may be offered in elementary school. The high profile of school violence and last year's terrorist attack has left many young people with bigger questions about their safety, their place and meaning in the world.
