WELL.....
I DO know that she cannot be a lesbian, cuase she is a Union grad, and they simply do not accept lesbians.....
unless, I guess, the said lesbian can play sports really really well? Then they can pretend to ignore reality to win ball games.

I've known Chanda the majority of my life. She is a very good friend, and a good person as far as I've ever known. She comes from a good family and very good parents. I cant see this being a situation that was deliberate. I feel this is a sorry case of some young person taking a liking to her and when things didnt go their way, the cried wolf. In that case, they would be just as guilty as she would be wether they were a minor or not.

I must admit that I have known Chanda for a while now. She has helped me a tremendous amount in my life and I am thankful that she has been a part of it. She is a great teacher, coach, daughter, friend, and person. I do not belive for one minute that she has done what this minor is saying, and I will not believe it ever. I feel that if your a minor and you take a liking to an older person, dont cry when you get caught. If that were the case, in my eyes the minor would be as guilty as the adult because a 15 year old knows what they are doing just as well as a grown woman! Also, if I know something is wrong from the beginning and makes me uncomfortable, I'm going to let it be known from the beginning and not wait until I get caught to put the blame on someone else.

I feel like actions and stituations just like this and/or very similar have been going on for a very long time and have just been kept under the radar. Not saying that one party or the other is any more guilty than the other in this situation, but they both knew what they were doing was wrong. It is against the law for any teacher to have relations with a student and she knew better. I have been around Chanda enough to know that she tends to take a liking to students and we all know that is just wrong. I'm personally glad that maybe this will open her eyes and bring an end to this behavior!

This isn't the first time that I've heard Coach Franks' name linked with a female student. I don't doubt the charges a bit. And, don't think this is the first time HHS has had a teacher misbehave. Ever heard of Tommy Scott?

I totally agree with you on that. A 14 yr old is just as able to make decisions as a grown woman. I feel like somebody got caught and ratted out the whole situation just to save face. I feel like with all the faculty there and counselors and such at that school, that even at any school, a student should feel that they can tell someone if something's going on without their concent as many people as works there. I just have never understood how ONE PERSON could keep someone from gettin help if they really WANTED it.

So in other words, because you know this woman and she is a good girl and comes from a good family, she should not persecuted for having a relationship with a minor? What if it were a male involved with a 14 or 15 yr old female student, no lets say a 14 or 15 yr old male student. How would that fare? There is no justification. If she did what she allegedly being accused of then they should take the same actions as they would anyone else. Not to sound biblical or anything, but we are smack dab in the middle of the bible belt and no one is booing her for a female teacher and a female student. And yes, she is a lesbian. I believe she has been living with the same woman since they graduated from UNION.

"A 14 year old is just as able to make decisions as a grown woman"? Are you retarded? If that were true it wouldn't be against the law you dumbass. At that age difference it is against the law with or without consent.

As I listened to the news report and heard the law officer make the comment that this was the first time something like this had happened at HHS, I immediately thought of Tommy Scott. He was a male teacher who invited boys to his home, got both very drunk, and assaulted one of them. This was hushed up and he was moved out so fast, and if I'm not mistaken, he just moved on to another school. Of course, this was quite a while ago...over 17 years. I would hope his offense would be taken more seriously today. I knew one of the young boys and I can tell you that his life deteriorated so badly...

Chanda comes from a wonderful Christian family and has always had a great personality. when this came out. I hope it isn't true and am in prayer for her and her family. This will bring so much hurt into their lives and I'm so sorry for them.

this is not the first time that she has been with a student and all the people out there who think that it is okay or that the student had a choice. blah blah blah. you are as sick as she is. people have been reporting her for years and she was never caught but now she has been and I pray she gets what she deserves. and I pray the girl stays strong and puts her where she belongs! and I hope more come forward! it's sick to pick your girlfriends from your softball roster!

it's people like you the reason more students don't come forward when they are molested by teachers or anyone. because they are not believed so then their lives are messed up because of it. IT'S AGAINST THE LAW! and their are teachers and faculty and who knows who else who knew what was going on but didn't want to say anything. I assume that you don't have children or you would not be saying that the girl is as guilty as she is!

this is not the first student that she has had a relationship with. she threatens these girls and anyone who may know about it not to tell. she is a person of authority. if a student did make a pass at her she is the one in position to stop it then and there. anyone who knows her knows EXACTLY what she is and if they say different, they are just taking up for her and hiding the truth as well. I hope she gets what she deserves and I hope she has plenty of time to think about what she has put these girls through. all of the teachers at Haywood have been informed to keep their mouths shut. that's what the hell is wrong now! just because she comes from a good home doesn't mean she is a good person! she knows what she did and she needs to face up to it!

I hope she gets all that she deserves. She is a sick puppy. These are CHILDREN not adults. They had no choice in the matter. I hope ALL the girls that she has molested will stand up and be heard. The teachers and principals knew about it and never said a word. How sick is that. Never trust anyone around your child. I wish the teachers would speak up NOW, but no they are being told to ZIP it or else. Thanks Mr. King for NOTHING!!!!

NO! this is most definitely not the only one. she started a relationship with one of her other students in 2006. it continued until 2009. this girl had her nose broken twice, she had fractured ribs. this teacher bought her alcohol and drugs. these are facts. no hear say. I know the family of this victim. she would beat the hell out of her and then buy her clothes and the girl still to this day will not testify against her because she is that afraid of her and she has had her brainwashed. so is Chanda Franks a good person?! HELL NO!

well I would just like to say to the student who has come forward, I for one am very proud of you! it takes ALOT of courage to stand up and face people like this. so you stay strong and don't let her get away with what she has done.
