Teen years can be very difficult years. You have to continue to push his education whether he likes it or not. There is Home Schooling available with no charge. It provides everything needed. There's a book I recommend for teens called: Search For Significance by Robert Mcgee. This book helps with quite a lot. There's one for adults as well. I hope things work out for him and the rest of the family.

All his room needs is a bed, some clothes, and some books to read. All he needs to eat are basic meals... no junk food, soda, etc... you are only obligated to provide for his basic needs. If he wants anything else he will EARN it by going to school and seeking counseling.
While you are removing his possessions tell him he can go to school and seek counseling for his anger or the next time he lets his anger get the best of him you will call the police and press charges... and then stick w/ it.

I have talked to the teachers and principal. He wants material items I'm unable to afford and don't acknowledge that he has other siblings it's not only him I have to support. I tried counseling but he refuse to receive as well. Oh boy

Don't worry about that post, it's an autospammer.
In regards to your post, what have you done about his attitude? Have you asked him why he doesn't want to go to school? Have you had a meeting with his teachers or anyone else at school that can tell you what's going on?
I think you need to get to the bottom of him not wanting to go first, then address his anger.
