Pronouncing a student’s name incorrectly is now a microaggression and an act of erasing someone’s identity, a new campaign is asserting. The “My Name, My Identity: A Declaration of Self” campaign was launched in 2015. Among other things, the campaign claims that a teacher mispronouncing a name can cause “anxiety and resentment” in the student, and even “hinder their academic progress.”

Really, now?
