"Board" Exam...the last "Trump"

I was just browsing through government websites for my paper in the graduate studies when I chanced upon this article in The National Statistical Coordination Board website. The author is quite witty for a government employee and creative for a statistician. And surprisingly, the article was written within a government agency and within the current toe-licking administration. Just a question though...why did the stats say that the top fields for boys is engineering and for girls is business...but what I see is more and more...and more nursing students? Maybe it's the question asked on the respondents could have only been what they PREFERRED,which is definitely not the same as what they WILL TAKE in college. :D And take note, boys are better than girls in passing board exams. :D The sad part is, that the figures for board exam passers decreased significantly and specially, as stressed by the author, that of the Teaching profession. :( But nevertheless, I give Dr. Romulo Virola a toast for a very interesting article.
