Tories Broken Promise On Private Schools

Tories: Another Broken Promise
The Tories have quietly dropped election manifesto promises to force private schools to provide "public benefit" in order to maintain their charitable status.

The plans had been to force independent schools to forge formal partnerships with local schools or offer a significant number of bursaries to poorer children to retain their tax status, earning them favourable business rates and VAT exemptions on fees.

However, it has now been revealed that such measures have been watered down and are to be left to voluntary arrangements.
