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.
