Sounds like the pedagogy is supposed to be geared towards boys who can be energetic and have short attention spans, but if that is the case, why make it open to girls as well, if they have a different learning style? But more likely than not TK is PC.
When the church is committed to being God’s politic, then Christians won’t fit into any worldly system – Two-Party or otherwise. The church, by its very life, is political. When it models mutual participation, economic justice, the things that make for peace, healthy marriages, and taking care of each other from cradle to grave, it serves as a reminder that God’s politics is something other than the world’s.
Most likely for this author it is one that does not participate in war-making or protecting the community from malefactors. It is a vision of political life parasitical upon the state and those who make sacrifices for the state? In such an instance, the Church isn't a complete political community, but dependent upon the "state" for protection and defense. This is probably not so different from Hauerwas' vision of the Church but it disregards the duties Christians have to their non-Christian neighbors.

Looking into the Future Through His Eyes: John Paul II, the Catholic Church, and the Crisis of the West
The age of the ethnic or national transmission of Catholic faith – the age of Catholicism transmitted by a kind of genetic inheritance or osmosis – is over everywhere in the Western world.
This profound and challenging vision of a Catholic future in which every Catholic is a missionary and every place is mission territory is taking some time for Catholics to grasp, especially in what have been comfortably Catholic societies and cultures for centuries. And yet Catholics must understand that we are living in apostolic times, not Christendom times. Christendom in the West is over.The patriarchate of Rome has not even begun to recover from the consequences of the development of the imperial papacy. prestige loss of scale and accountability that resulted in clericalized institutionalism, feminism, loss of leadership In order to be the Church of the New Evangelization, Catholicism must renew and reform itself. Let me indicate very briefly two such lines of reform that seem to me especially urgent in Poland.
To be the Church of the New Evangelization requires a deep reform of Polish seminaries and Polish theological education. The priests of the future in Poland are all going to have to be missionaries, whether they’re priests living in and working from religious communities, or priests living and working as diocesan clergy in parishes. Every man who imagines that he has a priestly vocation in the Polish Catholicism of the 21st century must understand that he will, of necessity, be living a missionary vocation. That means that priestly formation in diocesan seminaries and religious houses must be formation for mission. The notion of the priesthood as a privileged career of providing sacramental services can no longer be the dominant notion of the priesthood in the West; it cannot be the driving image of the priesthood of the future in the United States, and I do not think it can be the idea that shapes the Polish Catholic priesthood of the future. Priests of the twenty-first century who think that their primary task is to maintain the Church’s institutional life – priests who do not think of themselves as missionary apostles – will eventually find themselves being museum-keepers.
Secondly, this Church of the New Evangelization in Poland must be a public church, but not a partisan church. It must be a Catholicism fully engaged in culture and in society, offering the truths that it is privileged bear to the public conversation about public goods. But the Catholic Church of the future in Poland, or elsewhere, cannot be a partisan church identified with any particular political party, political faction, political tendency, or political philosophy. Whenever the Church has done this in modern history, serious trouble for the Church’s primary evangelical mission follows.
Regarding the reform of seminaries and theological education: what exactly does Weigel want in terms of forming priests? That they shouldn't be bureaucrats? Do the men seeking Holy Orders in Poland give credible witnesses as Christian men? What good will it do for these priests to be missionaries if they cannot make Christianity attractive to men?
Weigel says that the Latin churches need to refrain from being partisan. But to be in support of the state (and require obedience to the authorities of the state) is to be partisan in favor of the state. Will the Latin churches recognize that anyone advocating a breaking up of the state is presenting a legitimate political view?
If the root of the cultural incoherence of the West is a loss of faith in the God of the Bible (the Jerusalemic foundation of the Western civilizational project), then the Church of the New Evangelization – the Church of the future, according to John Paul II – is critically important to the rescue of the Western civilizational project. For it is the Church of the New Evangelization, in its work of proclaiming the Gospel and in its public witness, that will help Western civilization recover “Jerusalem,” and thereby recover “Athens” and the cultural confidence that reason can grasp the truth of things – which is essential to defending the rule of law against coercion in the name of skepticism and relativism.The loss of faith and sin are fundamental problems, but they are always the fundamental problems. Can the churches of the patriarchate of Rome effectively evangelize given its institutional inertia, degradation of ecclesial culture, and capitulation to liberalism and feminism? The mess that the patriarchate finds itself in will not be addressed until its leaders are humble enough to receive insight into the causes.
By being a Church converting the world to the truths of biblical faith, the Catholic Church is also reconverting the world to reason and reason’s capacity to order human affairs. The two go together. By being a Church permanently in mission – the Church John Paul II envisioned during the Great Jubilee of 2000, the Church that he described in Redemptoris Missio, and Novo Millennio Ineunte – Catholicism will both fulfill the Great Commission and offer Western civilization a path beyond this crisis of incoherence.

He has some observations about the local that should be considered. But his recommendations do not scale up to the national level, and can't be. Separation is a more feasible solution. And honestly, the sort of co-existence he idealizes at the local level is possible only because of some measure of separation enabled by cheap energy and a reliance on the state for addressing critical existential concerns. (And the state takes conflict remediation away from the people.)
The "social virtues" are important but by themselves they cannot create true fraternity, community, and solidarity if there are substantive differences in culture and identity. One may even have to be "not nice" and recognize that someone who lives nearby is not a person with whom one wants to associate, because they are working against the interests of you and yours. In many areas, social atomization has already taken place for 4 or more generations, and the social virtues won't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

What some "conservatives" are really advocating is for the (R)s to fully become the Big Daddy party, or the Alpha Party, while the (D)s continue their transformation into the Big Mommy Party. However, even DJT is a true believer in feminism; he's likely the best the GOP can get. Unless we get a Caesar who actually acts like Caesar to use the power of the national government to protect local autonomy, no GOP Chief Executive will be able to counter the cultural revolution, and feminism in particular, even if he were willing. Professional "conservatives" can continue their advocacy of broadening the base of the (R)s by espousing a civic nationalism combined with economic populism - "Hey (R)s, just listen to this, we know the path to future electoral success"; it's just a form of intellectual AMOG. But what we really need are men exercising leadership at the local level, not necessarily through mass politics, but definitely in their tribe and the broader local community. That is the only way forward as collapse proceeds.
Find your tribe and build it up.
