* RealitySubtext: The trolling/Gamergate storyline in season 15/Next Class is partially inspired by an incident where Winston's actor Andre Kim was [[http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/12/03/andre-kim-degrassi-racist-tweets_n_6263064.html exposed for previous racist/sexist tweets and comments]]. Linda Schuyler even stated the potential to turn that scandal into a teachable moment.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Several characters: ** Miles has been shown to be rash, impulsive, and with huge abandonment issues. He's also been shown to have panic attacks at the thought of his abusive dad and overall self-destructive behaviour. [[spoiler: In season 15 he dealt with it by developing a pill addiction.]] ** [[spoiler: Esme, Miles' enabler, also showed signs of a mental illness. She is hugely dependent on Miles and fakes a suicide attempt when she thinks he's slipping away. Plus, the prescription pills were hers so she's clearly been diagnosed with something.]] ** Hunter was shown to have issues with social interaction early on, but in season 15 it gets a lot worse. [[spoiler: It's very clear he has anger issues (he trashed the school computers after a club was cancelled, sent rape and death threats to the girl he blamed (she had almost nothing to do with it), physically attacked his friends after they stopped siding with him, and brought a gun to school with the intention of killing those who had "wronged" him]].
