If he refuses to go, you can call the police and have him escorted to school. However, it should not come to that. Reach out to the guidance counselor and ask for help. Obviously your son has some anxiety issues that need addressing. He doesn't want to drop out, it benefits no one.

I think that you need to work with his counselors to improve his experience at school. If he has consistently struggled, you need to make sure that his IEP is being followed, etc.

Legally, he's got to stay in school until he's 17 (in the US, that is)
