Ex-equalities chief condemns private schools for refusing £1m for poor white boys

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former equalities chief has hit out at two leading private schools for refusing a millionaire’s offer to pay for £1m in scholarships for poor white pupils.

Writing in the Daily Mail, Trevor Phillips, the former head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, accused Dulwich College and Winchester College of “self-righteous guilt-tripping”.

The schools reportedly turned down the gift from philanthropist Sir Bryan Thwaites, who attended both and intended to leave the money in his will.

He wanted to help white boys from disadvantaged backgrounds because they perform worse at school than their counterparts from other ethnic groups, according to the newspaper.'
