This particular September 9th in 1983 had a lot to do with the state of education in the U.S. - Missouri teachers were going out on strike over School Desegregation. Schools were shut in Newport Oregon because of budget cuts and collective bargaining was in danger with school teachers in New Haven Connecticut.

Not a particularly good day if you were a kid trying to get an education in 1983.
