Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The Massachusetts teachers union and Boston NAACP are teaming up.

The partnership wants to see more minorities as public school teachers. The two groups also want to improve early childhood education while maintaining the highly qualified teachers at hard-to-staff urban schools.

Officials say the partnership will promote disciplinary measures that don't take students out of the classroom following non-violent offenses.
