Hi arigatou, and welcome to the fray.
If you want to religious teaching in schools, their tenants, then the answer seems to be yes, they do not reach enough people through their own channels or channel is not valid.
Indeed, there seem to be a group of rather desperate (imho) believers that think that every single aspect of their lives needs to be tied up in their beliefs or they are in danger of losing their faith. Every waking moment, every breath, every thought.
From my point of view this is a very weak form of faith, being so vulnerable to the slightest perturbation of wind by the wings of a butterfly. Sad to be so scared of exposure to any other kind of thinking.
