Is SchoolTube part of YouTube?
NO! There is no financial, ownership or operational connection between SchoolTube and YouTube. SchoolTube was designed specifically for K12 with an emphasis on safety and privacy. To this day, the vast majority of schools and districts block YouTube.
"A boom in kids’ videos featuring disturbing subject matter—like artificial insemination, drinking bleach, and other jarring imagery—has embroiled YouTube in scandal since 2016. The videos used classic child animation tropes and knock-offs of popular characters to evade YouTube Kids’ content filter, where they racked up millions of views and ad dollars."
