I am all for the introduction of the key education=*

It makes sense, adds detail - improves the map data base.

Those who don't want change dissuade improvements.

Renders are perfectly free to not use these added details ... simply 
take all education=* as amenity=school and let others make use of the 
added detail improving their map and probably gain map users as a result.
