Susan Wojcicki, very happy to hear of YouTube's push for education. Please allow me a respectfully frank comment.

Creators like us/BookBox who make educational content (in our case, for global literacy/reading/language learning), are NOT making sufficient revenue from YouTube. Far, far from it. Even with over 63 million lifetime views, 270K subscribers, currently 60K views/day, mostly in India and other developing countries (which is exactly where we want to make impact), BookBox only makes $20/day from YouTube. Not sustainable.

What's sustaining creators like us is our passion for global literacy, but not a viable business model. It's heartwarming to hear of YouTube's interest in contributing to education. Of course, creators and YouTube will have to achieve this goal jointly.

I strongly believe that YouTube will have to work in close consultation with education content creators who are generating a strong Social Return on Investment (SROI), and come up with a sustainable business model for them. YouTube's revenue sharing model needs to, reward a composite ROI + SROI. Granted it's not easy... but then you ARE the guys who organized the worlds's information and made it accessible!

Feel free to reach out and I'd be thrilled to brainstorm!
