Michael Fletcher
Michael Fletcher is a White House correspondent for The Washington Post, where has covered the Bush administration since the outset of the president's second term. Previously, he covered national education policy, writing about such issues as the racial achievement gap, the No Child Left Behind legislation, the growing reliance on standardized tests and the battle over race-conscious college admissions. Before that, Fletcher worked five years as the Post's national race relations reporter. In that job, he wrote about a wide array of issues, including the impact of Latino immigration on black economic and political power in Los Angeles, Asian-American ambivalence toward affirmative action and motorists who felt singled out by police for "driving while black."

Prior to coming to The Post in 1995, Fletcher worked 13 years for the Baltimore Sun covering local schools, city government and statewide politics. He also has written for several national publications, including Crisis, Savoy, Code and Emerge magazines. A New York City native and Boston University graduate, Fletcher has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and television programs, including NPR's "Talk of the Nation," BET's "Lead Story," PBS's "Washington Week," MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," Washington Post radio and several BBC broadcasts.
