Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda
The Canadian television series Degrassi High has been praised regarding the extent to which it deals realistically with the issues of adolescence. A continuation of Kids of Degrassi Street and then Degrassi Junior High, the program became popular for its upfront presentation of emotional issues before the 90210 trend began. In this episode, Joey discovers he has a learning disability, and while on the defensive gets made fun of by Dwayne. Caitlin discovers she can't count on Claude to support her through the trial he got her into. After throwing punches at their victimizers, Joey and Caitlin both end up in detention together. Meanwhile, Tessa gets an old copy of the science test answers and passes them out to the entire class.
