Custom date column in user table not sorting correcting


Below is the code I am using to create and make a data sortable column. These data fields are created by Advanced Custom Fields. The dates are not sorting correcting even though they are displayed in a "Ymd" format. Can anyone help me get the dates sorting correctly?

//Add custom column to user list
function new_modify_user_table( $column ) {
    $column['school_name'] = 'School Name';
    $column['shopping_start_date'] = 'Start Date';
    $column['shopping_end_date'] = 'End Date';
    return $column;
add_filter( 'manage_users_columns', 'new_modify_user_table' );

function new_modify_user_table_row( $val, $column_name, $user_id ) {
    switch ($column_name) {
        case 'school_name' :
            return get_the_author_meta( 'school_name', $user_id );
        case 'shopping_start_date' :
            return get_the_author_meta( 'shopping_start_date', $user_id );
        case 'shopping_end_date' :
            return get_the_author_meta( 'shopping_end_date', $user_id );
    return $val;
add_filter( 'manage_users_custom_column', 'new_modify_user_table_row', 10, 3 );

function wpse_user_table_list_sortable_columns($columns) {
    $columns['school_name'] = 'school_name';
    $columns['shopping_start_date'] = 'shopping_start_date';
    $columns['shopping_end_date'] = 'shopping_end_date';
    return $columns;
add_filter('manage_users_sortable_columns', 'wpse_user_table_list_sortable_columns');
