This article revisits the concept of teachers as learners within the context of radical changes that have taken place within the education system in England over the past 25 years. The concept of professional courage is discussed and examined in relation to questions and issues raised by Paulo Freire in a series of letters to teachers (1997). Further questions are raised about professional courage in order to provide a basis for a dialogue concerning this critical yet unremarked characteristic of outstanding teachers and learners.
