Maybe Krypton is plagued by war (insert Brainiac-reference?) and it's custom that gifted children have to enlist to becoming future soldiers and military strategists and leaders. The war-council (lead by Zod) wants Kal-El because of his genes and specific potential, but Jor-El refuses and suggests "what if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society intended". "What if a child aspired to something greater?"...

Something like that.
