Students at Downtown College Prep Alum Rock High School in San Jose, Calif., describe how their names get mispronounced and misspelled in school. They are taking part in "My Name, My Identity," a new national campaign to raise awareness among educators for respecting students' names and pronouncing them correctly.
The campaign is a partnership between the National Association for Bilingual Education; the Santa Clara County, Calif., Office of Education; and the California Association for Bilingual Education.
