Example text

Thus sadness that underlies this irony can be inferred from the fact that Simon is excluded from the ranks of mainstream private school students. Lawrence is also expressing righteousness here when he begins to talk about the courageous family that goes public with their child’s learning issues. According to Turner (2002), righteousness is also a first-order elaboration of two primary emotions, in this case: anger and satisfaction, or happiness, with anger the most prominent. Lawrence’s anger at the private school scene and its parent constituents is once again evidenced by the emotional energy that drives his lecture-like description of the denial of status-seeking mainstream private school parents.

Elizabeth is also very critical of mainstream private school parents. She associates them with intolerance and exclusion when she says: E: Yeah but you don’t fit in any more. You’re not part of that circle. As a mother in a competitive private school, and Chesed is a competitive private school, when you’re the one with the troubled kid, the problem kid, the LD kid, you’re not part of that mother group because they don’t understand how to talk to you (…) ((pauses and shakes head and then voice begins to trail off to a near whisper as she finishes)) They don’t get it, so they don’t talk to you.

(…) E: ((hesitates, not welcoming the distraction then smiles and forces herself to laugh along)) ((voice beginning strong but softening increasingly until she is almost whispering her last words)) I don’t think I- I don’t think I’d necessarily be happier but (…) um, you know. We have a wonderful life style but I’m not sure I have ever reached my true potential- l, um- in- inin my career capabilities and my confidence, um, of being among really smart people because I never really got the opportunity to see how smart I really am because I think I’m really smart but I haven’t really been able to exercise that.
