The Canadian television series Degrassi Junior High has been praised regarding the extent to which it deals realistically with the issues of adolescence. A continuation of Kids of Degrassi Street, which was set in a racially and economically diverse city neighborhood, the program became popular for its upfront presentation of emotional issues. In this episode, Yick tries to test an overly harsh teacher who seems to single him out by turning in Arthur's sister's formerly high-graded papers under his own name to see if it earns a lesser grade. Melanie and Kathleen buy "drugs" from Joey and pretend to get high before actually getting mad and demanding a refund.
