Thirteen years ago, Tom Bloch was CEO of H&R Block, the groundbreaking tax organization. The son of the company's founder, he was a happily married 41-year-old executive, but something was missing from his life. After a nineteen-year career at the company, Bloch resigned his position to become a math teacher in an impoverished inner-city section of Kansas City.  Stand for the Best reveals Bloch's struggles to make a difference for his marginalized students and how he eventually co-founded a successful charter school, University Academy.
