Livermore has a $138/parcel tax through November 2013 which is used to attract and retain highly qualified teachers, and maintain small class sizes, college/career/job preparation classes, art/music/foreign language programs, computers, infrastructure and instructional technology upgrades, elementary science specialists, and high school counselors.

Looks like it helping them.

Way to go Livermore. It is good to see a neighboring community improve. Great to have some healthy competition.
