Seems an appropriate time to share some great educational videos. The federal department of education might be about to embrace the Dark Ages, but you don't have to!

If you know of others of this quality please comment!

Great for middle schoolers, science, English, history and philosophy:

All of the ones you listed are excellent. Here are some other series I really like, either for educational content or as prompt for student discussion:

Anything with Tadashi Tokieda (some overlap with Numberphile series): https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tadashi+tokieda

Smarter every day: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6107grRI4m0o2-emgoDnAA

PBS Infinite Series: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs4aHmggTfFrpkPcWSaBN9g

I think this is in the crash-course family.

Not to everyone's taste, but I think there are a lot of interesting things to learn/reflect on in The Show with Ze Frank:
