 This is often an initial sign of an attention disorder.  I would have your son evaluatated especially if working below potential.  Are there relatives with any type of mood disorder or ADHD/ADD?  Children with attention problems can pay attention to subjects they are interested in and avoid subjects that require sustained mental energy or are boring. Before working on motivation have him evaluated for learning disability or AD/HD.  You can make a written request to have him evaluated by his school.
