National Public Radio's coverage of the legal and ethical issues surrounding "right to die" cases examines the rights of patients and the responsibilities of relatives, the state, and health care providers. Grappling with the, "Who decides?" question may be troubling for some students, but can be a thought-provoking process.

We have yet to find a definitive career planning web site, but this offering from the US Departments of Labor and Education does a nice job of helping students sort out career options by both industry and education level. There's also a listing of which industries are growing most rapidly. While the site include many professions requiring a 4-year degree, job titles like engineer, physician, and attorney that require the most training are curiously absent.

National Runaway Safeline's tagline is "Keeping America's runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets." Find important information for students, parents, counselors, and anyone else who works with young people who have run away (or may be thinking about doing so) and their families. In addition to location and confidential contact services, the site offers a wealth of resources for both families and young people. This is a quiet problem whose dimensions are far larger than many realize. The site includes resources for homelessness, as well.

This online presentation and catalog from trade schools reads much like a college web site. While there are reams of facts and figures, students should be aware that this site aims to attract strong students in the same way as the web sites from the four-year colleges do. Caveat user, but technical schools can provide great career opportunities for particular students.

While there's a wealth of "common knowledge" about what it takes to succeed in higher education, specific discussions of the factors and preparation that let students succeed is harder to find. Developed by a consortium of leading universities, this online PDF reference is the sort of reading that counselors, parents, and students should have available when they begin to plan their high school careers.Remember that your computer will have to open Acrobat Reader to open the reference pages and booklet. Be patient if you are on a slower connection.

This PBS site for preteens and teenagers offers a fairly literate introduction to the differences between "the blues" and serious clinical depression - both major and manic. The site explains terms, discusses symptoms, and suggests ways to distinguish among these and get help for them. There is lots of information here, in a presentation that will be helpful to students who know they need help - or who know someone who may need help.
