Really? They would take you away from 3 children for the follies of one (many of whom would have to be fostered out in that time) and throw you in jail? That's disgusting. I really feel for you. I teach in a High School, and it is virtually impossible, as a parent, to get a child this age to school if they have made up their mind not to go, short of actually dragging them there and then staying to make sure they stay, which simply isn't feasible. Does your 16 year old understand that you would end up in jail and that the kids would have to go and live somewhere else? What have your consequences been for your 16 year old?

perhaps begin homeschooling him... my sister refused to go to school, she was HORRID when it came to authority, and working with other students. she is NOT a people person. so my mother home schooled her.
