Gendered Preferences from AP Courses

A study shows that there are gender differences within the preference of taking AP courses ( It is another example of how gender does play a role in the education process. This isn't about biological differences here, it is about finding a way to make content interesting and accessible to both boys and girls at a more even rate ... Isn't it?
But this idea of boys and girls having different interests isn't new. With this AP study we just know that it is far reaching. This may lead someone to at least consider the debate regarding some gendered aspects to teaching and learning.
