Hello friends,

Yes education qualification is must for the politicians. In country like India more than 70 percent of the politicians are uneducated and almost 50 percent of them are from criminal background. In our country we have kept certain qualifications for the job certain eligibility criteria, than why not for the politicians, if we really want to develop our country so the major step is to choose a candidate with better qualification who can run our country statistically.

Thank you.

Hello friends,

I believe that if education was so necessary in our political system ; the majority of people who are educated would have changed the course of the country. I believe education is secondary the true spirit to work for nation is primary.

There is no point where an highly educated man who is corrupted run the country, the important is the person with clean and selfless approach work for the development of the nation.

And I am against the philosophy that only educated man can change the nation I believe a person who is high in his spirit of honesty and hard work can change the image of the nation.

Really this is an amazing thing that there is no barrier of education to be a politician. There must be a change. No doubt that bureaucrats are behind them other wise it would have been changed many years ago. There must be an education barrier without making delay it must come in action that education is must to be a politician.

Yes educational qualification must be there for politicians. Suppose our govt chooses a illiterate education minister then think how will he be able to run the education department of the country? Being an illiterate he will not be familiar with the problems a student faces, he cannot understand about the new technical methods used for teaching so being a leader requires all round knowledge or knowledge in any particular thrust so minimum qualification is necessary.

We all are aware that without education person can't take right decision in any areas, not even on political matter also in personal matter. Its backbone of every human to live their life with good manner and well decision. There should be mandatory law specially for politician that every politician should be educated because he may think better and develop their territory well.

If they are not well educated then it may be very difficult to take right or wrong decision in any aspect of work. Our politician lead our nation and give a new aspect for better future to all so its really need to educate all and every politician.

I think that the higher education is compulsory for the candidates who want to contest in election. Because it is necessary for the development of any state as well as the country. Without education he can't take any decision for the development of the state and can't make any law for the society. It is harmful for the country that the minister of its is illiterate so for the development for the country it is necessary that the politicians must be educated.

In this we can express from this quotation.

"without education the minister is just like a pen without ink" and "without educated ministers the country is just like a sea without water".

Hello friends,

I am Sanju from Kurnool.

Every politician must have education. Because politician means a leader who leads people and their disguises into good path. And he has same some qualities about knowledge, knowledge comes from the education. Through the education he can lead his nation in the way of prosperity in financial crisis situation. And finally it explains to politicians how to react in countries critical situation and how to get back from poverty and unemployment. Not only this type of problems to face and over come from these but also it reveals politicians through education.

Most of good affluent nation depends on right leadership that connected with education. Now a days politicians stage different when we compare to past. Now politician leaders have to deal with other countries and maintain that agreement and different aspects from others, etc. They should have some education knowledge in this context. Finally by education he provides better principles and can be led country to top of the position as he can do.

Hi friends,

Well I see you all are correct but in my point of view politicians must need a qualification. As we can see the performance of our uneducated politicians or government, its not so good. A politician must know what's going on in our country, they should be aware of it. When they will become educated then government will have only educated politicians and leaders which will be too good for our country and future.

But if the government isn't qualified then there is rare chances that it would be good, when it is educated then will able educate the country and the future generation, in this case there is good chance of getting a good government.

My point of view, politicians need not to be educated. They should have good qualities to serve people. Now-a-days, we are speaking a lot about corruption. An educated and uneducated, both doing the same. They need to satisfy their own needs, they are not worrying about the problems of people.

And the point that comes to my mind is, when a child likes to become a doctor, engineer, the parents will feel happy. But the same child if tells to become a politician, they feel worse. And change the mind of that child. Why this is happening? It is written in our mind that politicians are not good people. It totally needs to be changed.

The perfect socialistic mind who wants to serve the people are collected and then employed. No need that a politician to be educated. Everyone can find solution for a problem. Nowadays education is also get through internet. It is very simple to.

Hello friends,

According to me the politicians must have some basic education like 12th, graduation with education the politicians have good personality, character, people relation and creative thinking in mind. Now we are living in computer world, education helps the politicians to use computer, international and represent our country in world wide.

We all want to become doctor, engineer, police, collector, banker, teacher very few people want to become politician because we think politicians are not good person, they are cheater, corrupted. Now we are expecting a politician with high qualification how it is possible?

Now a days there is a race between film actor & actress, criminals, players to become a leader. There must be some strict eligibility test for politicians like education, character, police record etc. So that we get a good leader.

In my opinion politician should have enough educated because we all know that education gives wings to our thought and we can think logically for a problem. And also can understand economic situation of the country and as we know that in more case educated people believe more in development.

Education also reduces negative qualities of a human for an example always Kerala has low crime cases in all over India because it has 90 % educated people. Not only education qualification but character profile of politician should also be verified for being politician.

Agreed with all of you, but I am of the opinion that education on some of the parts is necessary for a politician. Even though it is also true that in past time we had some less educated politicians but with this it is also a fact that they led the country in a well perfect manner.

Since, we are living in a technological world where daily new developments/innovations are taking place, and to understand its modern technique through scientists, inventors education plays a key role.

And at least to understand this in an appropriate manner a politician must be educated to express his country's developments in other countries.

Hello Friends,

Without knowledge anyone can't do anything and education is the resource of gaining the knowledge.

So leaders are our representative on which the whole Indians are identified. And this age is called as technical and globalization age so leader must no about these things and would be capable to take correct decision on time that's why education must be needed. So every leader must have enough knowledge about general, social and technical things to serve our nation towards the right way.

The good example is former president A.P.J.Abdul Kalam who have taken the successful test on nuclear power.

There is no need of educational qualification for politicians. If we looked in history, many politicians with low qualification and having good moral serve good for peoples many social activist don't have higher level educational qualification but they did it well, so point is rather than we set educational qualification we need to make assessment of character of our politicians.

To serve country, is all about moral not about education, so why we need to set educational qualification?I think we need certain laws if any politician has found guilty in any case then he should be disqualified for election. Many politicians are lawyer many politicians are highly educated but they found guilty in many cases, so we need good moral, good character and having ability and will power rather than degree certificate.

What I feel about this topic is its not all about education. Its all about the mind set of the people who are got elected in election so called "politicians". Because we have the example with us a non educated politician can lead us to better development than a well educated politician. But for the time being When we are giving power to these people to lead us.

They just come to know that they are secured in that chair of ultimate power in our nation for five years. That mindset lead them do the worse things. That has to be changed the power should be always in the hands of common people. If the elected ones are not going in the correct way.

We should have the right of calling him back from his powers and duties Just to make him understand that he/she is not safe there. That makes them rethink what they are doing right now. That makes him to respect the people that makes him stick on his duties.

Hello friends.

The Indian political system is in a mess because leaders are incompetent. For decades, we have been victims of corruption and there has been no development ever since our independence from the British. This is the bitter truth and the only solution is to elect leaders who are capable, well-educated, and are passionate about improving the welfare of the citizens. All the three aforementioned qualities are necessary for the growth of the country.

Having educational qualifications should not be the sole criterion for electing a leader. India's current Prime Minister holds a doctorate, the highest educational qualification one can receive, and yet, his contributions to the Indian economy and social welfare are not significant. This is because he is not passionate about reviving the Indian economy or enhancing the lives of the people.

On the other hand, we have capable leaders such as former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu, who changed the face of Hyderabad by developing the infrastructure and enhancing business opportunities in the city. He holds a Master's degree and is not as highly qualified as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but because of his dedication and determination to improve the lives of Indians, he has been declared a capable leader.

Having the right educational background and qualifications are important because education acts as a foundation for implementing policies. Only when people are aware of the problems can they think of the solutions. So, potential candidates should at least have a degree in fields that are relevant in the political arena.

Today, we see film stars joining political parties and they manage to secure votes because of their popularity. However, their capabilities are questionable. Some actors are well-qualified, no doubt, but are they aware of the problems of the poor and can they understand the dynamics of the economy?

These are some of the questions that we ought to ask ourselves before allowing people to take part in elections. Running a country and leading over a billion people is no laughing matter; it requires intelligence, charisma, foresight, and determination.

The US economy was in ruins when President Barack Obama took over from former President George W Bush. However, he managed to revive the US economy and today, the US economy is growing. President Obama managed to improve the lives of US citizens because of his strong educational background in law and his love for his country.

So, before allowing potential candidates to take part in elections, we should ensure that they have relevant degrees such as in law, economics, or political science, are capable of bringing positive change to the country, and most importantly, committed and determined to take the country to greater heights.

My opinion that politicians need good educational qualification, because that he had a better communication and good behaviour qualities so that he make several conversation between people of different linguistic and people of other nation in this time he can't make a good conversation it make bad impact.

I'm not telling that uneducated politicians are make bad impact. We know that Abraham Lincoln world famous politician he is not good educated. But these are rare examples, our former pm Manmohan Singh is highly educated in the world, he achieve near 100 of degrees he is a good ruler of our country.

At present Narendra Modi he having not educated but he also make good projects like make in India, each family got a bank account etc. Some more ideas here this shows education is not a important matter, if moreover education dream make politician well.

Hi friends, I think educational qualification of politicians must be serious concern before voting. Voting for someone implies I am choosing that person for proper management of resources regarding any particular department.

So if he is not deft enough regarding basic things of the sector he is allotted to, it may not be possible to make the most effective decisions regarding different issues. Although management is there to determine the policies but the supreme power holder must have some perception and conception.

About that otherwise even a good proposal may face strong oppositions and may be discarded. Also from social point of view due to lack of proper education up-to a certain extent can make it difficult for him to earn a reputation.

I think a minimum educational qualification maybe 12 or graduate (of course not like masters or PhD) should be there for politicians too. Earlier everyone didn't have opportunity to study even though they wished and thus some bright and honest people too remained uneducated who later came to politics and did great works. But today is different, basic school education is easily available for all and anyone who skips it must be a lazy or an ignorant person.

The world is moving fast and every country wants to excel and for that we need knowledgeable leaders. Of course corruption is one thing we all are concerned about, and in my opinion both educated and uneducated are same corrupt, even a good person later becomes corrupt as he enters the political system, thus corruption is a different story as a whole. Just imagine we have a corruption free government plus educated leaders, then we could not have asked for anything more.

I believe that education qualification should be must for candidates contesting in an election. I don't say that candidates without educational qualifications will not be a good candidate. The political leaders are the people who represent the society or country as whole, hence it is necessary for them to be qualified. If the people's representatives are not educated then how can we think that our society can progress.

A well educated leader would be more better at communicating his views to the people or the world. The thinking perspective of the individual changes, which would help him in taking better decisions for the development of the society.

I believe that education is a must for politician, education gives knowledge and knowledge leads to better decision, a person may have loads of experience in politics but experience without knowledge of that particular stuff, will lead inefficient decisions.

Hi friends.

I want to say that education is not only the set of degrees and certificate but it is more than that it develops the person intellectually and fully. An educated person will think in a different way than an uneducated person.

On the other hand I also want to say that it can never be possible that an educated person will never make a mistake he will but will reform it as soon as he can. There are examples in the past in which the leaders who do not had the good qualification had done well but what happening today is the sons or relative of the politicians are driving our country and spoiling the resources they know that they will get ticket easily.

In my point of view there must be some education parameter for politicians.

Thank you.

Hi friends,

I feel that, education is must for politicians. For example in our childhood days what's our teacher teaches us, "How to respect ours, how to behave with ours". etc.. Without education, our MP's and MLA's behaving worst manner. Many times we all seen that, our MP's are fighting in the parliament by throwing there chairs. Education is necessary for politicians, than only they know the value of that work.

According to my point of view qualification is important for candidates because candidate have not educated than how he or she understand the value of education. An educated person know how to face problems and solve them he use his or her knowledge but uneducated person cannot easily solve it.

So, Education is more important for candidates because the future of our country depends only him or her. An educated person can make right decision for better future of country not illiterate.

Education stabilizes a better platform to lead the life. As we all know importance of education can only be describe nicely by the educated personality. If a politician who have great patriotism and he is illiterate.

Then how can he give a good shape to the nations education? He only will work on superstitious nature and blame to system. So education is must to the leaders for better nations development. Not at the level of Oxford. But at least minimum education.

It does not mean that we should select a non-educated person but the leader should have free from any wrong willingness as well as educated because there are many educated leaders in our country even they are corrupt!

Hi friends,

I would like to say that education should not be the only factor to decide whether a person can be a political leader, or for that matter in any field. Education is a broader term more beyond just having a degree or educational qualification. Education is a form of learning wherein knowledge and skills and be imparted and having a academic degree is just one of the medium of gaining "education".

So speaking in those terms even practical experience can be a medium for gaining education. This is a well accepted fact and therefore, internships and vocational courses are encouraged across various degree courses.

So before being judgmental about a persons knowledge just on the basis of his academic qualification a comprehensive test should be conducted as a parameter for joining politics which would access personal attributes of an individual in weight-age with the academic lens.

Conclusion : Academic and experience should both be considered.

It is very much necessary to be properly educated for someone who is taking important decisions for our nation at every moment, otherwise their decisions may cause severe damage to our country's growth and future. Also while speaking in public, it is imperative to speak well and fluently, else it would send a wrong message of the standard of our administrative system.

In my point of view, education is not only the degree or some certified person. Education give people knowledge and information. From calculation part of view, one leader needs knowledge. From history or geographical part of view, he needs information.

If leader gives all the functions/works responsibility to his next level person, and tries to relax only, then one day will definitely come when he will be thrown out of his chair by them. A leader should be confident enough to answer any question coming from anyone. Educated Leader's confidence will not be fake/religious at least.

So he/She should have his opinion and that should be a strong and mature decision. He/She should now what will be the effect of the scheme even before implementing. And all this will come true only if the leader is educated.

Hello friends,

In my point of view, a politician must posses a good education level and with education he must be a good leadership quality. In country like India, India is a developing country not a developed country like America. America has good rules and regulations in their country because politicians of America are much better than our politician because of they are highly educated and they know the problems of world during their education, so education is a part where all can know the basic problems of a country and a world, and they can also find a solution. Because of they learned the problems during their education.

So education is must for politician, because there is a difference between a gram panchayat sarpanch and a country politician :).

From my era of concern, more than educational qualification I would keep honesty and will of the person to do something for nation on the top. Then comes leadership quality, practical knowledge and understanding of administration.

I think if a politician is educated then he would have more knowledge, better understanding. Can understand, analyse and find solutions in a better way.

And as one of the friend said an educated politician will be like icing on the cake.

For example: CAT requires a student to have great knowledge of mathematics, general knowledge, logical reasoning and also English. On the other hand a person who is going to lead our nation needs to do nothing.

Instead of choosing someone who unfortunately arrived in politics, educated persons deserves a better chance. And also some great leaders like Gandhi Ji, Nehru Ji, Dr.Ambedkar etc were all educated and serve as the examples.

2) He can generate better & smart Ideas to cop with problems that our country is facing.

3) He will understand call of time and will move with our educated youth for the progress of nation. This point is very important because we have seen politicians claiming that girls shouldn't wear jeans and other stupid comments that are highly condemnable.

4) Accepting uneducated leaders further promotes support to uneducated people.

5) An educated leader himself will definitely follow the law & rules of nation, that most of leaders doesn't do once they are in power and take shortcuts and misuse their position.
