Smyth, John, McInerney, Peter, Hattam, Robert and Lawson, Mike (1998) Teacher learning: the way out of the school restructuring miasma. International Journal of Leadership in Education, 1 (2). pp. 95-109. ISSN 1360-3124

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.
