** In a case of the editing making it worse, in Season 7 when Emma protests Purple Dragon energy drink by taking off her dress in front of the entire school, the US version of the episode cuts the last quarter second (or so) of the reveal shot. In the Canadian version the camera pulls back to reveal the top edge of Emma's panties, the US version ''doesn't''. This wouldn't be so bad, if ''every comment suggested she was completely naked''.

* RealitySubtext: The trolling/Gamergate storyline in ''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.

* FakeAmerican: Sarah Fisher, who plays Becky, and Craig Arnold, who plays Luke (two American nationals from Florida) are actually Canadian. Justified in the sense that Degrassi is a Canadian show with a Canadian Production Tax Credit, and the OnlySoManyCanadianActors trope applies to the max.

** In-universe, the school itself has suffered two forced mergers, one an expansion from [[MiddleSchool grades 7-8]] to 7-12 before being telescoped back to [[HighSchool 9-12]] again, and a slightly different mission almost every year with the result that in less than a decade a showpiece high-tech magnet middle school has been transformed into a struggling inner-city ''high'' school with metal detectors, standing police presence, a major bullying problem and a bad reputation in the community.
