At Falk School educational theory conceives the school to be a center of inquiry where students continually engage in the search for new knowledge. In this context, knowledge is perceived to be tentative, often arbitrary, and always constructed by the learner. That knowledge is tentative implies that the search for new understandings is continuous and that the generation of new ideas is always possible. That arbitrary nature of knowledge requires the learner to organize inchoate stimuli in a coherent way. The assumption that knowledge is constructed amplifies the importance of the nexus between a learner's prior knowledge and the exposure to new information. The mission of the Falk School Library is to provide the instruction, materials, and resources that will support the students in their continuing quest.
