Other questions about "Lot"

Q: There has been a lot of public discussion on whether or not single-sex education is a good thing in a modern society. I believe that we no longer need single-sex education in today’s world for the following two reasons.
First, public awareness about gender equality has improved. The reason why single-sex education has introduced that most people in the past thought boys and girls should learn different contents at school. For example, boys learned math, science and politics. On the other hand, girls learned sewing and cooking. However, nowadays, both boys and girls have a same right to learn everything. We do not need separate schools according to gender anymore.
Second, the number of children is decreasing. These days, we are facing serious low birth rate. If schools try to insist on single-sex education, they will not be able to gather enough students to run their schools. Single-sex education will make school’s management difficult.
