September 4, 1969 - Cut that hair!

Updated: Wednesday, September 4 2013, 05:31 AM EDT
On this day in our history back in 1969 a student at the Old Linton High in Schenectady was told he had to cut off his long hair.

The school's principal it was either that -- or sit out an upcoming band concert.
  
He cut his hair that night, but then-state education commissioner Ewald Nyquist heard about the case -- and publicly supported the student.
   
The Schenectady School board -- led by board member F. Morley Roberts -- asked Nyquist for an explanation.

Nyquist said if a student's dress or hair is not disruptive, then it's okay in the classroom.
