Talk to him about what he wants to do in the future. Discuss how important an education is. I know you are disappointed with his behavior, but I wonder if there is something going on that causes him to act out. I also suggest that you talk with him and try to find out why he is disruptive in class. Good luck!

Spanking won't work so no point even going there.
I have found that the more you push, the less they will do. I was the same and just wasn't any god at school.
My 16yo is more than capable of doing very well but I can't make him, it has to come from him. Have you had a real discussion with him about why he is like that? I mean actually listening to him, not telling him what he should be doing.
