Dr. Michael Hynes, superintendent of Port Washington Union Free School District, recently joined several innovators and school leaders across the state at The Princeton Club’s Education Business Forum in New York City.

After a breakfast and welcome introduction, the event kicked off with a keynote panel, called Educators. Panelists discussed the several challenges districts are presented with today ranging from student and teacher privacy and improving student achievement to diversity at colleges and budget shortfalls. Throughout the day, panels included Policy Matters; Starting with Inclusion: Creating a Culture; 1:1 Business Connections; SEL: Latest Fad or Here to Stay?; Deciphering the Alphabet Soup of Education; The Education Funding Landscape: What Investors are Looking for at Each Stage of Growth; The Role of Private Enterprise in Education; Sales and Marketing–Lessons Outside of Ed Tech; Future of Work Workshop Part II and CEOs Leading in the EdTech Landscape.

Hynes spoke on the panel, The Role of Private Enterprise in Education, which focused on the challenges presented by EdTech in developing instructional material. Hynes discussed the significance of having a balanced approach to education and why schools should not go to any extreme measures in their educational approach.

The Princeton Club’s Education Business Forum focuses on presenting perspectives on how to keep pace with changing customer demands, evolving investor expectations and new policy requirements.
