From a non-ben brit who clearly gets it, how many of us do:

And I am going to take this time to do my part. In the spirit of Yom Kippur, I truly hope that I haven’t offended you or wronged you throughout this year. If I have it was unintentional but I wish you would share it with me so that I can make sure to do better in the coming year. (I love that part of this tradition . . . assuming I am understanding it even remotely correct.)

Note re: refusal to teach some secular studies given requirement to make a living:

When there’s a perceived cognitive dissonance between the theoretical and the actual, it may be worthwhile to question whether one has completely mapped the theoretical.

In this case might one suggest that what is missing from the theoretical framework provided is an overarching concern that for an unacceptable percentage of the population the exposure to non-Torah stimuli will cause too many to leave. Of course one would have to define how many is too many, but I wonder why our grounding isn’t strong enough to withstand that exposure.
