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.
