I've been wondering if it would look strange if I didn't include both "pairs" of this idiom, e.g.:
In recent times a significant increase of popularity of teaching English as a foreign language in kindergartens is observed. However, it may be surrounded by many doubts, the main reasons being the great demand for this type of activities from parents, and at the same time the lack of specific, clear guidelines governing the teaching of English, which could be of help to those responsible for introduction of such classes into kindergartens.
I know it's possible (and indeed used) the other way around but I am not sure in this case.
