This is a qualitative case study of an educational program for English Learners at an elementary school. The study examined intersections of language, power, identity, and social inequality. Findings showed that multiple and juxtaposed ideologies negatively influenced cooperative learning groups that paradoxically were designed to promote peace, learning, and equality.
