Hi every one!

In my point of view education is very essential to a politician. Because if we have any problem to solve in less duration of time he must understood clearly and take the action fast. If the person may educate he have some knowledge about nation and his people.

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.

2. At least he/she is able to think what is good and what is bad so easily they can take better decisions for our country.

3. At least he /she should be aware of latest technology as well as has knowledge of different domains.

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.

Yes guys education must be the first qualification to enter into any position in politics. Education enables a man to get enlighten about the present situations. And also the participants should prove themselves through different ways other than doing rallies, door to door publicity. This must be done by the media where a common man is eligible to ask a question and listen answers from every participant about what ideas he/she to solve the problem. And the viewer also can decide who is suitable for the post.

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.

Well qualified politician can come with creative & innovative ways to develop a flexible system, which can provide the best services to common 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.

And the most important think that a politician should have strong leadership quality. There are so many leaders who are educated and still they are corrupt.

Hello everyone,

According to my point of view, education is must for politicians. A good leader is recognised by his leadership qualities, and to be a good leader, good communication skills, good analytical ability, good decision-making and visionary skills are needed and all this comes from education. It makes you a better personality.

A question arises.

A person is illiterate but is much experience than the literate person.

ANS: a literate person have theoretical and practical both knowledge. But, illiterate person have only practical knowledge. For running a country you must have both knowledge.

In my opinion, a minimum educational qualification should be there for a person to contest elections. An Educated person always reasons himself before making any decision by analysing the pros and cons of a situation and it is of utmost importance that, the persons who are making policies and decisions on our behalf think logically and their decisions are not affected by religious sentiments, caste system etc.

Since the literacy rate in India is about 70% and very few of them pursue higher education so the education qualification required should not be high so as to represent majority of indians, it should be minimum to make them able to analyse and understand the situation and difficulties they can face.

The ministers should be given a proper training (something based on the past experiences of former ministers) to make them more efficient. An educated minister can also give input to his secretaries, rather than being just a rubber stamp.

Which put pressure on the secretaries to do good work. Also, an uneducated minister gives a very bad impression to the foreign delegates he is dealing with.

Hi every one,

In my point of view politicians need not to be rank holder or a double graduate. The politician should be literate I mean he should atleast be capable of reading and understanding to communicate with people. Even though politician is not that innovative to plan for new ideas, he will get ideas from other source also, he should rate those ideas and show interest in implementing those ideas in practical.

We should mind one thing literacy is not only the quality of good administrator. We have seen lot of administrator who made India proud even being illiterate.

The best example I can give is 'Akbar ' Mughal dynasty king who was well known for generosity and development and he was illiterate.

Guys please give your feedbacks so that I can enhance my skill of cracking GD.

In my view, minimum educational qualification for politicians is not going make much change as certificate or degree is not a guarantee of being qualified. We all know in present educational system getting degree is not a big deal. There are lots of mushroomy colleges from where anyone can manage it.

I think it will be much better to employ some training programme for elected politicians where they should trained about dealing with social issues and problems, a compulsory class of moral science, and their regional issues.

Hello to all,

According to me education qualification is very important for politicians because if they are not educated they don't know what is the right decision for the country. If they are not educated how they can introduce new bill for the development of education resource in our country. Without proper education qualification how they can able to run the whole government.

In my point of view the politicians must be brave and they should take decisions with intelligence. They must know about people behavior and they know how to approach the people and solving their problems. For every govt job there should be some educational qualification and they are conducting exams to know about person knowledge and he is suitable for the profession or not.

For example IAS officers should qualify the civils exams to lead districts, so to lead our state or etc they must be knowledgeable and they also have some exams to enter into politics then only it should be very difficult to enter into politics.

Hello everyone.

I think educational qualification must in should thing in the politics. Because now a days maximum number of leaders are completely depend upon their personal secretaries. This is not at all fair. In my point of view those people who are coming into the politics without any knowledge regarding the particular service category, they just come with an interest to earn enough money to survive further life joyfully.

They don't apt for doing service for the people in society. If suppose an educational person is in politics, he can manage everything better than the candidates for whom we discussed earlier. What I mean to say is, all the officers. From Grade-4 to gazetted officers should have minimum educational qualification, they why don't political leaders need not to have educational qualifications.

Hi. I would like to conclude that politicians must have minimum qualification in education. Because education gives us analytical thinking power and ability to tackle with the situation. It will give every basic thing to improve oneself. Some of our politicians were not educated but they did well but the scenario of present completely changed due to globalization. Right now every politician has to know about how the country is functioning. For this minimum qualification is required.

Educated persons are performing criminal ideas in a correct way. Now a days a politician should be qualified and we know sir Kamaraj was not educated well but he leaded well. According to my concept not only higher education is needed, but also they should have enough experience knowledge.

With experience they should know to learn people not to learn criminal ideas.

As I think it is not necessary for a politician to be highly educated but I have a better idea "internship programme for politicians" in which they work under experienced politicians and get the knowledge about how to handle situations, how to solve problems of common man, how to take action irrespective of strong opposition. So when they become a leader, they know what do they have to do and how to do that.

Hello all,

Politics as any other field is a prime important field which gives direction and leads to development of the country. In my opinion its imperative for any person to be educated to get into politics. The reason why I say this is.

1. To understand different and difficult situations people face and to provide solutions you would need basic education and know how.

2. To speak in public with confidence and to be able to hold audience, politician needs to have knowledge and to impart knowledge through good delivery skills a good sound basic education is a must.

3. There will be situations where a politician needs to take decision on the spur of moment, only education can help him take bold decisions which will help develop the country.

4. If he is educated he will not be dependant on others for seeking resolution on difficlut subject. He can look at different angles on the issue and come with a solution which is beneficial to majority of masses.

Im sure there are many more benefits of an educated politician which I have not listed however the message is loud and clear. To be a good politician, education is a must !

Lets think that if we were politician so whats the common people want from us such as hunger to serve the nation, he should not have any criminal records, how to take the action on serious topics of nation, proper understanding or communicating behaviour with the common people, he should not be corrupted, he should have the capacity to tackle in different situations.

Hello everyone.

There are so many questions arises about the educational qualification of politician is it necessary or not. Another question arise that if no need of qualification for politician then why we are study a lot. According to me basic education should be there, a person should be of good understanding to handle the country or state matters. There are so many entrance test if we are going to take admission in any reputed college/university even we have to just take educational qualification or degree then why not the test held for leader for politicians who have huge burden of society or country.

They have to do a big job. Rather if we said that education is not necessary because education does not make a men wise rather experience and how to handle the problem matters a lot. But in this era no one easily rely on any uneducated person so the basic education is very necessary. A politician must have ability to understand situations and the problems of people, the main work of a politician is to serve the nation, he should not of guilty mind and for the sake of to earn money by this way or Not have any criminal records with no corruption if he did not get any educational qualification.

According to my knowledge education is not a representation of a human being. It improves the personality of mind and heart. And so I think its not so important for a political leader to be educated by books he may be educated by his life and society. The main act of the leader is to understand the problem of the people and have a knowledge of developing the country by handling all the sectors and officials.

But we should strongly oppose the candidates with criminal background and no knowledge of politics.

A politician is our leader whom we select to represent our region, our state or our country. He should we honest, bold to take actions in critical situations, unbiased. And I don't think any educational system works on moulding students according to these qualities. Educational institutes may make student literate but not educated.

I personally feel that its not very necessary for ministers to be have an educational degree. Ms. Indira Gandhi was not a graduate but she is one of the best prime minister India ever got. Rajiv Gandhi was also not a graduate but he was an able leader. Degree doesn't make a leader.

Hello everyone,

The main role of politician is to serve the nation and do do we need any degree or qualification to serve our society or nation ?

Certainly not !

We all are the people of this nation and anyone can raise their hand to serve irrespective of their caste, creed, qualification or religion.

Politician should have qualities like :

1> Ability to understand situations and the problems of people.
2> Ability to take strong decisions irrespective of opposition.
3> Hunger to serve the nation.
4> Ideas to develop.
5> No criminal records with no corruption.

And many more.

But all these qualities require vision, determination rather than qualification.

If a leader is educated its good but there are much more important qualities he must have like humbleness, reach to people, no criminal records, no to corruption and should have moral values.

So to conclude, its good for a politician to have degree and other qualifications but it should not be made mandatory.

We have various examples of great peoples who have not good qualification like bill gates, abraham lincoln, henry ford but they are most powerful motivation of peoples.

I am not saying that education is a bad thing if our leader is educated it will be good but it is not necessary that a literate leader can understand the problems of our country.

From my point of view no one can judge the person from their academic degree only. It is very necessary to have a lots of general knowledge about our country's economy, farmlands, social services, peoples primary needs, their secondary needs etc. To the person who wants to be a member of Indian politics. Also there is no any direct criteria which will measures the knowledge of candidate one who wants to join politics. The better way is we can set a criteria that every candidate should have a graduation degree. From that we can assure about their thinking capacity and proper decision making. Although not all educated politicians are capable to run our country. But it is always better to know a person by their education and experience.
