Charity rules now mean private schools have to prove "public benefit"

Independent schools in England are protesting about "too narrow" 
rules for charitable status - as two out of five test-case schools 
fail to qualify.

The loss of charitable status threatens tax benefits for independent schools.

The Independent Schools Council says the rulings rely too much on the 
number of bursaries, with fees likely to have to rise to fund 
subsidised places.

The Charity Commission says charities must "demonstrate how they 
bring real benefit to the public".
