Politics in Colleges. Should we encourage or ban it?Looking back at my school days, I was a bench leader and one of the 'assistant class monitors'. Likewise, many of us would have been a student leader, a treasurer or a president of the students association in high school or college.
It's a great feel to be part of something big to help fellow students and be the go between students and management. This brings in among many things a sense of responsibility and leadership.
But off late, we hear so many depressing situations or events in the college campus, wherein education takes a back-seat and politics, personal gains comes to the fore-front.
This at times becomes a huge burden in terms of loss of valuable education time, if you look at the money spent on teachers, infrastructure and the tuition fees, then it would be a sizeable amount. Added on to this is the destruction to property, treatment of injured people and the time law enforcement personnel spend in centres of learning trying to contain violence.
In the best interest of student welfare and education should we encourage or ban politics in college campus?
