I just found out about something called senior tax exchange programs—where retired adults can bank volunteer hours at local public schools to earn reductions on their annual property taxes.  https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2012/08/29/02age_ep.h32.html 

Communities that are aging faster are less likely to support public schools. Engaging older adults in the classroom has been proven to bolster political support for local education issues among the most likely voters. Plus, it's great for the kids.

Anyway I can't imagine why Measure EE failed.
