I don't see any reason to think it can only be used in a school setting 
or only of children.

It's neutral. You can chase your dreams. Children can chase each other 
when they play. You can drink a chaser to chase down hard alcohol. My 
parents' boat is named///Chasing Rainbows./

Klingon *tlha'* doesn't seem to have any positive or negative 
connotations to it. In English, /chase/ is something you actively do, 
while /follow/ could be active or passive (you're being led behind 
something or someone). So far as we know, Klingon *tlha'* broadly covers 
both /chase /and/follow./
