dc.description.abstract The problem of this investigation lies on the urban Black child and how his environment may affect his relationship with the teacher. Being a Black child in an urban environment presupposes that he or she is a person of'; two worlds- the traditional and the modern technocentric world. The modern school education aims at making him a fully - functionihg adult who will be part of this new age. How does he then relate to the teacher and the school system? The urban environment is too much of a hustle and bustle where divergent values and modes' of conduct and behaviour abound. For an urban child the confines of the backyard are too narrow for him and the lures of the streets are overpowering, and he or she is moved by the irresistible spirit of physical and psychic activity and is likely to absorb and reproduce whatever meets his or her vision. Whenever there is quarrelling and fighting there urban children throng. Wherever there is an arrest or revolting scene, there children flock, eager to know all about it. Will these .depraved tastes, and appetites not af'fect pupil-teacher relationship in an organised school setting? The urban environment is much too complex with different forms of stratification and greater mobility, less parental authority and dimished close interpersonal relationships. How does this affect him when he is under the tutelage of his teacher,? To investigate this problem, the phenomenological method of investigation is undertaken within the ambit of philosophy of education, the aim being reflecting, analysing and evaluating the encountered situation; using results of experience and research in relation to the issue in question in order to see educa.tion comprehensively and constructing a guide to action in respect of the problems uncovered by the investigation. en_US
