question There had been two dozen fights in grammar school, even more of them in high school, warranting two suspensions and uncounted detentions in spite of his good grades. Question: What’s the meaning of ‘warranting?’ ( warranting == getting? )

Hi Maggie, Warranting is to justify or necessitate. In this case, what they mean is that the behavior has forced them to discipline the student, even though the student is receiving good grades. You question is valid and respectfully asked. It warrants a response. :-) Have a great day, Stephen
