In the summer of 1969, the New York State Department of Education passed a “liberalized” dress code for public schools. It basically said that each student had the responsibility of how he or she should be dressed at school.

The Watertown Daily Times sent a photographer to the Watertown High School in October 1969 to see how students responded to the changes.
