Private schools will still be able to use tax breaks worth £100m a year to
the industry, after the
Commission ditched a plan to remove their charitable status.
The commission has given the schools five years to meet tougher criteria for

Dame Suzi Leather, chairman of the commission, said removing their status
would have been a tough decision to make in the current economic climate.
Critics said private schools should do more now for their communities to
justify their status.
