This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Socioeconomic Status and Educational Expenditures in Nebraska," by Robert Henningsen.
In the study of political science it is easy to become preoccupied with the descriptions of political institutions, behaviors and processes. Therefore, political scientists have frequently overlooked the importance of socioeconomic forces in shaping public policy. There seems to be no great mystery in accounting for public policy by looking inside the political system. However, the relationship between socioeconomic forces and public policy is less clearly understood.
