I find it quite insulting for channels who have made good quality educational content right from the start and never touched the "kids niche" at all but who don't get anything like 11 millions per video and hardly ever get promoted by Youtube despite YouTube recently saying that education was going to be a priority.I find it interesting that Ryan Toysreview made a video titled, "Learn Why do we Cry and more Educational Video for Kids!!!". It is one hour full of educational content. They have never done this on their channel, but now that it is necessary for survival they do it and Youtube gives it 11 million views. Their meta tags on the video consist of "learning video for todllers (sic)" (yes the mom can't even spell toddlers in an "educational" video), "for children educational", "learn about", "one hour of learning", "one hour of educational videos", "learning", "learning video for kids", and "educational videos for kids."
Seeing all these kids channels pivot to "education" but who obviously have no skills or qualifications in teaching but immediately getting millions of views really is ridiculous. Teaching is a profession and requires a lot more skill than just looking up random articles on wikipedia and then putting together a video with a click-bait title and thumbnail.
If I sound bitter it's because I am lol. ^^
