For any job there is an eligibility criteria. Similarly for any politician educational qualifications are must, if he/she is just 10th pass or 8th pass. Then how could he/she debate on FDI like policies or any related issues. If politicians are more educated then they could also understand the policies or any issue for the betterment of the nation.

Thank you.

Hello friends,

In my point of view leadership quality is the education of politics. He rules in any critical situation when he has the leadership quality. But the minimum degree is required.

Education is not required for the our politician because to sever the nation required the humanity rather than the education and it should be enough education qualification 12th passed. To take big decisions for country required a lot of experiences and human power.

According to my opinion education qualification is must for politicians. Due to illiteracy our ministers and politicians doing fake politics they do not works for public service and they depends on govt officers for english speech and many other works. As far I think education qualification is must for public delegates.

Hi friends, there should not be any education qualifications needed for politicians. Politicians should be a good and very helpful man and for that it is not necessary to be educated. He may have a great knowledge and its practical sense without a degree. Further, degree does not proves that he has a great knowledge of outside circumstances and atmosphere.

Education is step for key understand the logical and critical solution. But its not given good real time experience. But our politicians have lot of real time experience and some of good knowledge also.

In my point of view politicians or don't need educational qualification we want good man became the good politicians. Knowledge is not only in education. So it's not important.

Hi everyone.

In my view, education is not the prime factor to be a politician, rather it is patriotism and dedication to serve the country which is more important than educational qualifications.

Let us suppose a person has n number of degrees and a very nice educational background, will that be alone sufficient to make that person a successful politician?

I think no.

Unless politicians don't have the feeling of making India number 1 country in world, embedded in their heart and souls, they cannot become successful and such politicians won't bring any change to our country's current status.

Hi friends,

I am Ritesh. Our topic of discussion is whether educational qualification is needed for politicians or not.

From my point of view, there is no need of giving educational. Requirements for politicians because ability to handle complex situation & leadership quality doesn't depend upon educational, Qualification, Good knowledge of common man problems and right solution capability can judge real politician. Example: A shopkeeper knows how to sale product better than a educational Person.

A real player is who actually played on ground from beginning not by watching match a far from ground.

Best Example is Narendra Modi, Our hopeful PM.

Education opens the mind of everyone but coming over to our topic according to my view education qualification is not that much important to serve the nation, and to understand the situations and problems of the people, well many people says education qualification must necessary to be a member in the politics but I think severing to the people doesn't require any special educational qualifications but one should have humanity rather than education qualification.

Hi friends.

We all know the importance of education in today's life. If one wants to live life happily and full fill his dreams than he needs to be educated.

I am giving preference to education because the time demands it and not just the manners and values, the knowledge too.

There has been great rulers in our country like Akbar n all. That was there time and they had enough education to become rulers. Well I must say leaders instead to saying rulers. Now the time is different. It has changed. Now, it demands more education with the basic values and principles.

Now, I must come on the point, in today's life politicians are our leaders, so friends, don't you think that they needs to be well educated as they have been governing our country?

Well, I think a well educated politician i.e. a leader is far better than a non-educated one.

I think education should not be a bar on politician. If you are true to your work and have some great ideas that you are keen to transform into reality then thats all. A great ruler is one with common sense. Akbar was the great Mughal emperor and he was illiterate. But this does stop him rule the hearts of people. A good leader is one who understand what should be done and is capable of making sound decision. All this comes with experience and will power to excel.

I think that there should be some weightage given to both qualification as well as experience, because if the politician is well educated then only he can think whether whatever steps he has taken is going to improve the previous existing conditions, and according to his experience he will make the decisions, so both should be required otherwise non educated politicians are not able to deal with the advance technology and can't be able to understand it, and hence he will not able to take decisions in this types of matter.

In view of mine it is important to be educated because education is like the ornament of wise people. But it can't define the definition of good politician, sometimes we are seen that well educated persons are not fit in the typical political situations.

Here we have an example of our prime minister "Shri Narendra Modi ji", who is not so educated but well administrator. All leaders have some specific qualities who make them the leader but education help them to through it in shine.

Those who handle the situation very smartly will be eligible for leadership.
That leadership is important for politics.
Every one says that "knowledge is power", no one says that "education is power".

I don't say that knowledge alone is enough, education is also needed to handle any situation.
From my point of view 50% knowledge and 50% of education is minimum qualification for politics.

Politician qualification should have to judge on the basis of their work of quality not on the superficiality. And another thing I want to mention that such post like educational ministry post is very important post because, design taken by the ed. Minister can play important role for our future generation. So if minister is not as much qualified then how can take sensible design.

So its depend upon the minister if minister is a good person and experienced. Then they can be handle.

Everyone talking about politician qualification, P.Chidambaram, Manmohan singh and many are very qualified person and what is done by these minister is everyone know not need to tell.

So I want to say that politicians qualification does not matter. If they are doing well for the nation.

Education is not necessary! It is not necessary that a person getting excellent marks is also a good planner and decision taker. A combination of the two is needed for a person to become a great politician. In my opinion It is not required to have an educational qualification for the politician. It doesn't matter that person has any degree or not only thing which matters is the work done for the public and his nation. Even educated persons now in our country have caught in the corruption. So why do we judge people only on the basis of their qualification, why not according to their nature, qualities and work done by them. Person should be well aware of his responsibilities for his country and should have following qualities.

1. Person should be honest, patriot and devoted to his country.

2. He should have good leadership, always think and work for welfare of public.

3. He should be able to bring out ideas for removing of corruption, poverty, unemployment and inflation like diseases from our country and must be able to implement those laws.

4. He must be a good decision maker so that can bring the change in our country.

I am not saying that person should not be educated he should be but subject knowledge and hard skills don't determine whether he is suitable to be a politician or not. The above mentioned qualities are sufficient for a politician not any paper certifying his education. There is on need of education for our politicians because we are living in a democratic country and we only choose them that means we should put more stress on educating our public than politicians so that they could choose a leader of their own choice.

Education and leadership, 2 sides of one coin A good politician is recognised by his leadership qualities, and to be a good leader, good communication skills, good analytical abilities, good decision making and visionary skills are needed, which all come from education again, it is all a cycle. I remember asking my math teacher why we study math, and she had said to me that we do it to increase our analytical skills and sharpen our brain. So here again, education makes you a better personality. And anyway, a politician is a public figure.

Yes education is necessary Education is important in the preparation for leadership because education serves as one of the best way to built the " better us". Through education, we can learn on how to understand other people, through education we can know our weaknesses, strengths and develop them through wide learnings. We study certain topics that we will absolutely encounter when the right time comes for us to to become leaders. By being educated, we can more knowledge, better thoughts and wide understanding about our chosen field and about our people. Their demands, their expectations and even their impressions with regards to their leaders, politicians rather. "Education molds our characters". It helps us to be more aware, more determine and more prepared person, a well-prepared person for a well-known job- "leader". Education contributes a lot of things to us and those things can serve as our weapon as we face the real challenge of being a good leader, things like experiences, failures, active participation and even the friendship that we have made between the people the surrounds us both in school and in our home.

In a country like India, where the largest democratic system prevails, to be a politician isn't a simple task. Each and every decision taken by the ministry should consider more than 120 crore people residing here. So for the smooth conduct of democracy, the politician should have a clear vision and mission. With education only, comes these qualities. Also, the politician should be uncorrupt, dedicated and socially concerned.

For a developing country like India we need to implement Very Innovative Ideas, Audacious Projects and Diplomatic Strategies in order to move ahead and shine on top of the world and this kind of traits are seen mostly in highly educated persons.

Hi this is Simran. I would like to say that education with experience is must for every politician because when we go out to find a trivial job first of all we are being asked for our degree and work experience so why not politics. As we all know to be a politician is the biggest responsibility or he is going to take the responsibility of the entire nation. How can we give such a biggest responsibility to a person who does not have knowledge or experience in any field.

Before going into any field we should have enough knowledge about it. Education should not be made the benchmark but there should be a minimum qualification for them and there should be some training programmes for them before becoming a member of the parliament. There are other criteria which also should be considered before giving them such a big responsibility like their criminal background. If they are educated and well experienced they can lead nation better or can make INDIA a developed nation.

Politicians need education qualification at least till graduation. This will help them handle the government tasks if they are the part of it. Or if they they are opposite party they can understand the bad decisions made by the government and they can bring these it to common people. Otherwise what is the purpose of political parties. Otherwise family and loyal politics will prevail in the country. Politicians can't think freely otherwise.

Our countrymen have the right to do everything. Right to education also. So it is very important that our politicians are educated and literate as well in the field they are into. Education will give them a wider aspect to think answer solve and resolve matters in an understanding manner. They would be at par with the people in terms of knowledge and skills. They would know exactly what is written in the Indian Constitution.

In my opinion there should be an entrance exam to become a politician. So that we all get to know about his/her knowledge and judge about the ways our country would be excelling in their hands.

There should be a written syllabus for them to learn and analyse them accordingly.

Hello friends,

According to me politicians must be educated. If they are educated then only they can analyses the problem of our constitution and political system. If they are not educated then they can't be able solve the problem of our country. As for the development of country we need to do business with other foreign countries if they are not educated then they can be cheated easily and we face loose instead of profit.

In my thinking a leader or a politician should be well educated as because knowledge enriches free thinking and creativity of mind. To modernise a nation and for its development creativity is required. He must have the will to solve problems at all levels and capability to think freely. But sometimes it happens well educated persons cannot serve well for the nation. So thinking about the problems of society is required and mental skills are also required. So educated politician can serve a lot better than an uneducated one.

Hai friends, in my point of view, a politician must have educational qualification because the politician must have some important skills like leadership skills, honesty, time management, sincerity etc. These skills are getting from education. So, education is very important thing for politicians. Some of the universities adopt the political management and produce very talented politicians. India and china also adopt this subject. So minimum educational qualification is necessary for a politician.

Politicians should have minimum Education. They should have the certain basic knowledge of how the country is. Without having education a politician cannot turn about as a good leader. Education is one of the most important tool in the preparation of leadership because education serves as one way to build the "better us" and also because many leadership attributes are gained through education.

Hi friends.

According to my point of view education qualification for politician is not so much important because educated peoples know many ways to cheat innocent peoples, educated peoples work more on theoretical basis but the uneducated peoples do any work by their practical knowledge, this will leads progressive development of the nation. If education qualification is made as mandatory then it becomes difficult for many good politicians who are uneducated even though they have good leadership quality.

In my point of view, education to a politician helps to a large extent. Because they are the who has to mould the entire nation. They are the one who has to know the exact tax laid on people, precise knowledge of prices in the todays market, rise and fall of country's economy and many more. For this education is the only thing that favours. And having education is not enough, being smart should add on to it.

And also the participants should prove themselves through different ways other than doing rallies, door to door publicity.

I find it funny that I have to participate in a debate at school, the topic being "Education is mandatory for Indian political leaders or experience?". Isn't it too obvious?

I'll just give an example :

A person wants to construct a building for his office. He contacts a builder and gets into a contract with him. He lays out all that he desires for the building and gives a fixed budget to the builder. Now all he wants is the building to be ready in the given span of time, with no idea whatsoever about what the builder is doing or how he's doing it! In other words, he gives relevant orders and then waits and watches.

The builder knows his work well, and assuming he's honest & hard working, he does the job quite well. If he's not, then what can the former do about the wasted resources anyway, right?

Now in the above example, our ministers and leaders should be like the builder, one who knows what he's doing. Sadly they're more like the man who give orders and then just sit and watch.

So yeah, I'm sure education is mandatory!

Hi friends.

I would like to opine that the politicians should be educated. Educated in the sense that he/she should have the minimum basic qualification. They must be educated in order to understand present scenario and to introduce new reforms. Consider this case. If an education minister has to reform the present education system. He should have the knowledge of what has been happening or what had happened before.

He should be aware of the previous education system. Of course there may be politicians without much qualification who became successful. Still it may not be the case everywhere. There may be educated people who can assist the politicians at the helm but they have a minimum awareness of the things in their field.

In my view educational qualification is not much important for politicians. There are many other qualities which plays a key role to serve people. As major of the people in India are poor people. The person should know the problems of the people for that he does not require a B-Tech or Ms degree the basic knowledge is enough to make right decisions in right time. There are many other people in our country without any qualification but they made miracles. If Qualification is made mandatory for people they will work only for earning money not for serving people.

They are able to make a good vision and mission for the country in order to make it better and best. They can become a good leaders by directing and taking people along in accomplishing the vision.

In my point of view the minimum education qualification for the politicians must be graduation. Before the starting of his or her political career he should be on probation period of minimum 6 months. During that probation period he should be judged or appraised by the public or some other senior authority working for the government. If he or she could not able to prove himself or herself that he is the suitable candidate in the Indian politics then no further chance will be given to them to continue their career in politics and spoil the Indian progression.

Hi all,

According to me Education is a vital part for any body whether he/she is a Politician or a common person. Education not only enhances our knowledge but also helps us in decision making and to enhance our leadership traits as well.

Politicians who directly or indirectly influences our Economy and also represents our nation in front of the whole world, for them education becomes necessary. They are considered as political leaders of our nation and to lead the entire nation in a positive direction, their Education, knowledge and their decision making ability plays an important role.

According to me only an educated leader/a politician can think wise, can analyze all the important aspects efficiently and can make sound decisions even in critical situations and can lead an economy towards a bright future.

Politicians are directly involved in two main pillars of our constitution Executive & Legislature and to maintain its strength and dignity they should be well educated and knowledgeable enough to understand and to support its functioning for a betterment & growth of our nation.

When I say smart I mean that the candidate should be well aware of common men problems, he must have a vision of brighter nation and let me remind you that a visionary need not be educated but just smart enough to meet its dream (you can find various instances all over the world wherein an individual "not very well educated" has done tremendously well in its life). I know many of you would debate that doing good for oneself is different from running a government, well I do not deny that and no one can deny the importance of education in today's lifestyle but creating a benchmark would not let the likes of (no names) many of our industrialists or even politicians who have the spirit to lead India to its true position.

According to my point of view education is not a mandatory thing for a politician but it is something like a extra jewel in the crown.

Main thing is that he/she should be more passionate towards service to the society and should be free from criminal or other illegal activities he has have a concern towards the people.

He should be bold enough to put froth everything in spite of hard circumstances if he believe that will do good to the society.

But some how as one of our friends mentioned above to take good decisions in difficult situations education will definitely will help and in case of a spell bounding speech which is a mandatory for a politician it will help him a lot.

One more point is now a days politics are becoming more cunning and having a knowledge on all issues is more important otherwise he will be mislead ed by the other persons so to avoid this education will be helpful.

Finally social concern and dedication towards the service and sincerity are more pronounced for a politician than education.
