One of the points in the above article says, "As far as politicians go, all that is required is common sense and wisdom. No amount of education can ever span the chasm of lack of practical experience or lack of common sense." Is it only "wisdom and common sense"that we look for in a prospective statesman? What about a strong sense of service and commitment to the nation? If not for these attributes in some of our greatest leaders, we wouldn't be where we are today! If not for education, do we get to inculcate common sense in the way we approach problems? There is so much of learning happening at B schools today, all about the art of management in the corporate world, implying that we do require this in-depth knowledge to accomplish tasks pertaining to a managerial role. And running a nation is 1000 times (if not greater) tougher than that. Are we underestimating the huge responsibility and the amount of work that comes with the power that a politician holds? Education would naturally make a politician stronger and more efficient.
