Stafford. "Public School Uniforms: Effect On Perceptions Of Gang Presence, School Climate, And Student Self-Perceptions." Education And Urban Society 35.4 (2003): 399-420. ERIC.

Mary Stafford is an associate professor and training director also of the School Psychology Programin the Division of Psychology in Education at Arizona State University.
