* CharacterDerailment: Degrassi High ends with Wheels turning his life around and beginning to take his responsibility for his past behavior, working to regain the trust of those close to him. By School's Out Wheels has regressed back into being the selfish, self destructive person he was for much of the final season, ignoring his character development.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Liz is a lesbian and in love with Spike. We see throughout the series that she's uncomfortable with men. Some of that can be explained away by the sexual abuse she suffered as a child, but many lesbians are in fact sexually abused during childhood. We see her romantically linked to three guys during the series: Joey, Tim and Patrick. Her relationships with Joey and Tim never panned out past one date and nothing indicates she ever kissed either guy. As for Patrick, it could be explained away as showing interest in him because Spike does. Lastly, she often acted possessive of Spike whenever Shane, Spike's ex, would come around.

* TheUnfairSex: Joey and Caitlin both cheated on each other at different points. While Joey's affair with Tessa was rightfully portrayed as in the wrong, Joey never discovers that Caitlin went out with Claude and kissed him at least once before their first relationship ended. This occurs in again in The Next Generation where Caitlin drunkenly makes out with Kevin Smith. Both times, Caitlin is portrayed sympathetically.

** When Erica initially tells Heather that she's getting an abortion, she begs Heather to come with her. Heather panics and refuses, running out of the room. Erica is left sobbing because she's terrified of going alone due to the anti-abortion protesters outside the clinic.

* ValuesDissonance (Many of the story arcs, especially Michelle's and Dwayne's, only make sense with early 1990s attitudes toward parenting, AIDS, and so on; also, modern audiences will probably not be amused by the scene where Joey and Wheels dance as caricatured Mexicans)
