            Schooling should result in certain minimum levels of learning in the individual for the benefit of the individual and the society and quality education is a right now.  The learning curve in school education is still showing downward trend.  For long teacher education has been mostly focusing on the development of pedagogical skills in teacher trainees.  This paper makes an attempt to discuss the teacher education curriculum beyond the pedagogical skills.  A teacher is in charge of a group of young learners, therefore in a leadership role, and is expected to helping in transforming their lives.  A leader doesn’t wait for things to happen by it or expects to be told about what to do next.  Teacher quality is one of the conditions for ensuring success in school education for everybody.  Transformational leadership is one of those qualities that need to be developed in present and future teachers for the success of school education for everybody in India.
