I oppose this proposal.

Schools have forever been landuse=residential as schools belong to 
residential areas.

Introducing yet another special landuse is just more confusing and it
does not fix a single issue.

When schools share campus make it a large amenity=school area
without any name and amenity=school + name nodes for the schools.
