It's considered polite. People also have inside shoes for the house -- you don't want to bring in dirt from outside into your home.

Osaka in Azumanga explained it well: What if you step in dog poo? You don't want to leave your shoes on and track it all across your floors.

Just take that logic and apply it to schools.
