Abstract

Traditional notions of "point source dijffusion " fail to describe ihe multiple channels of information that states have regarding a federally promoted innovation and the mobilization of groups into intergovernmental, intersectoral information networks. This article tests the concept of "polydiffusion" in schoolto-work progams, exploring participation and information in the network, state variation in information search, the role of the Internet, and implications for policy learning in the federal system.
