    balance between

    Quote from VOA News:
    "You have to strike a delicate balance between making information available for those who have a need to know for the good of public health, as well as not making it so freely available that anyone - even people without a legitimate need to know - can have access to it,"
    Should " as well as " be replaced " and" ? As far as I know ,"between" is always paired with "and".
    Thanks.

    'And' is good; 'as well as' is not.

    making information available for those who have a need to know

    I would prefer:

    making information available to those who need to know

    not a teacher
