Well, my guess is so that the kids don't step on something and hurt themselves and end up suing the school. Also, if someone stepped on their toes, it would hurt. It's just SMART to wear shoes to school, wouldn't you agree? I mean, why would you NOT wear shoes to school? Sure, it might be more comfortable, but really... Why??

Shoes are compulsory in schools as there is a safety issue with students having barefeet. It is more likely that kids will hurt themselves without some sort of protection on their feet. I dont think any parents would disagree with sending their children to school with shoes, unless they were neglectful that is...
