First of all am very glad to speak about this topic.

According to my point of view, education is essential for politician. Even for a simple job and less responsibilities, companies are recruiting through qualification. Politicians have major responsibility and they are ruling our country. So they need education.

Education is important for politics and important of our life also if politician have education than only improve the country is wrong education is separate and political field is separate education is only complete maximum 18 but politics not complete short period this is long time process.

If one person entering the political field every 5 year candidate election participate the election and participate different types election and have much more experience this field is first importance of experience, and good character, and how to lead the political life.

Hi I am Alli,

First of all I am very glad to speak on this topic.

In my opinion, educational qualification must be necessary for politicians. Because even for a simple job we have some eligibility criteria to get through it. But politics is a very responsible profession compared to others.

If they are well educated and qualified then they can take their decisions by their own without depending on others. So that I support this.

Hello friends.

In my opinion minimum educational qualification for the politician should be there and it should not be less than post graduation. Because we all know that in our country, there is min education qualification for even sweeper in govt jobs, then why should these people who are going to run these governments can be illiterate?

Education widens a person's thinking ability, decision taking power. Although there are IAS officers who are making the polices for the government but the final decisions are taken by the politicians, so if they are well educated then only then can serve the society in a better way.

Thank You.

Good Evening My friend,

According to my point of view if the country ruled by educated politician where is the guarantee that he make the people fool. Either educated or uneducated is not a matter character of the person and willingness of person is important. Because Educated politician make the people fool in simple. There are nobody to ask any thing about mistakes. If any one ask then he simply escape by telling some rules. What I am saying is that people should educate. Then There is no mistake while choosing politicians. Of course I agree with all comments that Politician should educate. But people should also educated. That is my conclusion.

Thank you.

As per my point of view, every politician must education questions. Politicians should have at least if qualification. Because without qualification of an MLA, an MP they don't read any circulars for this purpose they maintain one pa for reading this sources. If the political leaders are educated person's they may know all policies, amendments & rules then automatically they should take suitable decision relating to people & society.

Illiteracy is considered as curse everywhere in the world but in India we hand our whole political system to an illiterate person who can be easily be-fooled by anyone.

We need smart people, and people with little or less education can't be able to be smart. It is true that representative should be a person who is sensible and represent the whole society but in country like India can't we find a single qualified person who posses all that abilities of leader.

We can, and hence education should be qualification criteria should be compulsory.

Friends I have something to say.

I personally feel that education qualification is not a great requirement for a politician in India. Every minister will have highly experienced IAS officers under him. No person in our society will become a CM/PM directly (except in very rare cases) , he will have to face tight competition in politics. He will definitely learn the real governance through his experience in the local level politics.

As concerned about knowledge a politician should be able to think in broad manner like an IAS or its equivalent. He should be in a position to understand what is happening around him and what is the present senior of the things going on. When he acquire that knowledge he will be in a position to understand others and can think for a solution of a problem in more sophisticated manner.

I can say education is not required for Indian politicians now because here most of them are coming to earning money and fame not for doing good. Instead of education if those would have had some other qualities such as good heart, courage, right decision making skills would be more helpful. If we think about growth and to be competent then education is very mandatory. No need education for sustaining the present level. I don't think so India has reached that mark.

In my point of view,

Education is essential in politician qualifications, because he is the one who owns the responsibility to take feasible decisions in typical situations. Country/city development depends on his conclusions.

When we came service, it is not obligatory. It is the matter with heart, here essential qualifications are honesty and kindness.

So, politician has to make sure that not abandon above qualifications.

Narendra Modi, with not so strong education background, a sublime politician, an influential personality India has seen in years. Since elections, he made visits to many foreign country and surprisingly none questioned his educational background.

Rahul Gandhi, strong family background, high educational qualifications, yet not supported by Indians.

This makes one thing clear, we Indians demand a leader who is pragmatic, sincere, and offers viable solutions to the most intense problems faced by our country today, and we will always support them.

I wish I could have said that education is must, because then how will the politician understand the depth of the problem if he has no idea of that field, how will he ensure good relations with other countries if they have no common language to interact.

But our respected prime minister answered all these questions through his sincerity, hard work, honest and transparent behavior towards his followers, towards Indians,

And I think if a leader has those mentioned qualities, education hardly matters. :).

It may be any field or any situation in life, arguing that uneducated person is better than educated one is IRONICAL.

Coming to politics, political career of a politician doesn't solely relates to his own interests rather it decides the FATE of people under his governance.

So it's obvious that a person who governs state/country has to be well educated to take the most APPROPRIATE AND EXPEDITIOUS decisions.

An educated politician can well understand the requirements of various status of society and work for their upliftment by taking right decision at right time.

Good morning friends,

Now a days education is most important to all of us. To isolated any good or bad decision only to make a knowledge. Some peoples told education is a not a matter, its apart from the knowledge. And current politicians were comparing to the great speaker of Kamaraj and Anna. Its too poor. Because they are legends of politics and more influences of the peoples. Don't they compare with current politicians. They are only fame at serve only for people in our life of death. But current politicians only fame at notorious fame.

So education is more essential in politicians for solving problems and taking of innovative and creative ideas. Same mix flour doesn't to mixing is invaluable.

My point of view is that politicians should be educated. When the government necessitates that one should have at least a bachelors degree for a clerk post, it is all the more important for a framework that necessitates politicians to have a minimum qualification. And I also think this is important because even though they have many advisers in their cabinet who are individually experts in their field, for, the politicians to individually understand, believe and take a rational decision they must be asked to possess some higher qualification.

In my view educational qualification is not much important for politicians. The politician should know about the the problems which are facing by people and should put great efforts for solving them. Politicians are to serve people. For example mother Theresa serves people a lot. It's due to her big heart but not due to her educational qualification. Politicians should have great heart like her than educational qualification.

But by having educational qualification, the thoughts or ideas for solving a problem will be good and sophisticated.

Finally I want to said that if a politician have great heart to serve people, it will be good. If he has educational qualification also, it will be more good.

Education is not only about having a degree or certificate because in my opinion a labor is also educated in the context of his work which he/she has been doing for a long time. The only thing is a person should be proficient in what he/she is doing and education is only a mean of quantifying your skills. As far as politician is concern his/her thoughts are enough to make a stand for a society. If thoughts are clear and transparent definitely he/she will do good for the country.

In India there is an entrance test to be at any post. But to be a politician you need not to qualify or to meet any criteria. All you want is a support, doesn't matter whether the person is a holy man or a criminal.

There must be a criteria to be a politician:

1. A person must have matriculation certificate.
2. A person must have a clear background.

And its not difficult to meet this criteria as one can get knowledge to this level from government schools. Government has launched many schemes to provide education to all.

I am strongly in favour of the fact that it not and absolute necessary for our politicians to be educated. Because the qualities of leadership, organisational skills are not only taught by education.

We learn it as our life progresses through observation, implementation and experience. We find at many instance that the educated sometimes does not have organisational qualities. Where as the uneducated may possess the qualities.

Some are born to be leaders. Some are not. So a politician who deserves the seat by virtue of his qualities should always be given a chance irrespective of the fact that whether he is educated or not.

But if you are looking on the India there is not needed any education for the politicians.

In my view education is must for politicians. Because,

1 - Education builds our logical thinking and mentality to handle different situations in life.

2 - They are pillars of our country and represents our country outside our India also if they are not educated enough then don't have the ability to judge right and wrong for our nation as well, as well as with education come the manners and dedicated to behave properly in front of everybody.

2. To get any kind of job when we (common people) need to have minimum qualification required then why not there is any minimum qualification requirement of politician.

Today, the test of being a politician is, your money power, your caste, how many degrees you have, but these should be avoided. The real test for politician must be his knowledge about the necessity of his countrymen. The politics must support the development of country. Politicians education must include the knowledge of agriculture and technology means he should have all the necessary knowledge for the overall development of the country. He must support the poor people.

He must be aware of the basic needs of the poor specially the children who are the future of the country. He must know how to work in a group. Today, the politician do not work properly and they give up their responsibility towards country's development. In their speech, they invites for their countrymen to take the responsibility of country' development. But they do not do so. They must invite the people to work together with them.

I think that education is necessary. The person who is going to lead should have the understanding of what he is going to do. One should be educated in his thinking. There are three rules applicable here.

1]Thinking 2]Saying 3]Action.

Thinking quality matters a lot here. If you think good about nation, you do good for nation. Thinking good does come from education. Having knowledge about each and every field, about the things going into the world, about the changes that should happen for the good. This all things definitely comes from education.

Good Morning friends.

In my opinion educational qualification of a politician doesn't matters. But what matters is the knowledge he has about politics which can't came only from by education only but can come from the practical knowledge. You can take the example of King Akbar who was uneducated but was one of the leading leader of his time. He was not at all educated but was having a lot of experience due to which he was able to make correct decision.

Secondly we can take an example of a mechanic who doesn't have any theoretical knowledge but has practical knowledge about vehicles and on the other hand we have mechanical engineers who have theoretical knowledge but no practical knowledge due to which they are not able to repair there own vehicle. With this what I am trying to say is that practical knowledge is more important then theoretical knowledge so therefore it is not mandatory or it is not necessary that a politician is very well educated but he should have practical knowledge about the politics.

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.

For example, If some one has elected as our Educational Minister, and he/she doesn't have knowledge of india's education system and its drawbacks, how can he/she will be able to take the correct decision.

Hello friends,

According to me, in every field, we require some education qualifications, it may be a job of a peon or a job in defence or in any industry. So for running such a large country, why education qualification is not required. It must be required because education gives a real understanding and managing of things in a better way.

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.

Hi Everyone,

In my point of view, priority should be given to both education and experience. As if someone is not so educated then he/she won't be able to deal with modern problems, science and economy. And if someone is not experienced then he/she won't be able to deal with billion of hopes of people.

Hello everyone.

First of all I appreciate the one who asked this question.

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.

Thank you. !

Hi everyone,

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.

We should know the two things. One is Education and another one is experience. Politician, who is educated will take the decision with respect to the future by using the thinking capacity and their presence of mind. The uneducated politician who is also having the thinking capacity but not to the level of educated people will take the decisions with respect to the feedback of the people.

So education is also important for the politician.

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.

You would take an example of our prime minister, he is not to much qualified.

I am fully appreciate with one of the my friend's points (vishal mishra) qualification of any minister does not matter. 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. An ideal citizen, if he/she is only not educated then that might not encourage the other illiterate masses to want to study, for they will always have to option of being an illiterate politician.

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. Always bear in mind that "experience is the best teacher".

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.
