UK: Leading private schools turn down donor's £1m offer to help poor white boys

Article here. Excerpt:

'Leading private schools have turned down a donor's £1milion offer saying scholarships should be for pupils from all backgrounds.

The two top schools are at the centre of a race row after a philanthropist claimed they rejected scholarships for poor white boys.

Dulwich College and Winchester College turned down Professor Sir Bryan Thwaites' offer to leave the funds in his will because they feared breaching anti-discrimination laws, The Times said.
The row comes after the rap star Stormzy created Cambridge University scholarships to aid black British students exclusively.'
