The rightful role of teachers in the current wave of educational restructuring around the
world reveals that teachers have had less than a prominent role in that. This paper argues
that teachers exercise important pedagogical leadership in schools through the way they
shape, enact and live the vision and culture of their schools. A particular instance in
Australia is described in which sustaining a culture of debate around teaching and learning,
and the indigenous structures that support a more politicized view of teacher learning,
constitute a crucial expression of how teachers live out an entitlement to speak.
