    This chapter examines how non-state actors in education are shaping the lives of teachers and the policies related to their work on a global scale. Non-state actors are unelected and independent of government and range from the supranational bodies of the World Bank, OECD and UNESCO to national and international non-profit organisations and foundations, private philanthropists and for-profit edu-businesses. Through the economizing of education, supported by processes of international competitive comparison, new modes of global governance have emerged in education. The concomitant scrutiny of teacher quality has provided market opportunities for edu-businesses and education entrepreneurs to influence teachers’ work.
