(El alumno) es incapaz de seguir indicaciones/instrucciones


Explanation:
Un poco más fuerte que la versión inglesa.

Otras opciones:

No cumple con lo que se le pide que haga.

No hace lo que se le indica.

El componente de "en clase" me parece que sobraría en español.


Buena suerte!

(El alumno) se niega a seguir las indicaciones del profesor.


Explanation:
Yo prescindiría del "en clase"; no obstante he añadido "del profesor" porque creo que la frase quedaría un poco coja diciendo simplemente las indicaciones.

No acepta las directivas


Explanation:
En el boletín de mis hijas, en el punto "Apreciación de la conducta personal y social" dice:
"Acepta normas grupales e institucionales de convivencia",
de allí hago una extrapolación, para llegar a mi propuesta: "No acepta las directivas", o "Se niega a aceptar las directivas" mas creo que "directivas" podría sustituirse por "normas".
