(AP) – The New York Times is reporting many Division I schools are distorting their athletic participation numbers so they can remain compliant with Title IX.

The newspaper analyzed public records from more than 20 colleges and universities and federal participation statistics from all 345 institutions at the NCAA’s highest level.

It found some schools were padding the rosters of women’s teams with unqualified players, or counting athletes who no longer wanted to compete. The New York Times also reported Tuesday that schools counted male practice players as women and trimmed the rosters of men’s teams.

Title IX was passed in 1972. The landmark federal legislation is designed to create equal educational opportunities for men and women.
