Read a comment posted at Ms. Mercer’s blog at Response to a Comment.
It is not unusual for IB, and TOK in particular, to get attacked. Read this New York Times article about the opponents of the IB program and explore their website.
Why do they think people are attacking TOK and IB, how does it make you feel, and do you think any of those arguments have any validity? If you agree with any of them, please say why you do — and it is absolutely fine to say you agree. If you believe any of the arguments are fallacies, please explain why.

Please answer the questions in the comments section of her blog, not here.
Please answer as many of them as you can and demonstrate your best thinking and reflection. And please be honest….

Ms. Mercer, who visited our class two days ago, wrote a letter to the students in our class.
Please go to Dear Theory of Knowledge Students and respond to several of the questions she asks you. You don’t have to answer all of them, but please give your most thoughtful responses to which ever ones you choose.
