The lead question homeschoolers get, after 'is that legal' is:
What about socialization?
Isn't he supposed to be socializing? Isn't that what the place is for?
I would suggest practicing with him 'speaking so quietly that only the person you're talking to can hear you' because 99% of the problem, from a teacher's pov, is the disruption.
Then, of course, you might like his perspective on it: is he singled out? Often individual children disliked by the teacher get written up about the same things other kids do far more often, or he's getting caught answering someone who isn't getting in trouble, or the teacher NEVER picks on the girls for this...
There is more going on in that classroom than your son could describe in 5 hours a night. Expect it to be a LOT more complex than the reports indicate.
