Harvard’s Faust Says Athletes Not the Only Cheats, AP Reports

Harvard University President Drew Faust said athletes shouldn’t be singled out for blame among students in what is believed to be the largest cheating scandal in the school’s history, Associated Press reported.

About 125 students may have shared answers in an upper- level government class called “Introduction to Congress.”

Harvard University’s football team, favored to retain its Ivy League title in a preseason media poll, could lose some players this year because of the cheating probe disclosed by the school last month, according to a person familiar with the matter, Bloomberg News reported Sept. 10.
