it's the perfect example of confusion between two different things.
if a school is located on the ground floor of an apartment, office,
or commercial building, believing that amenity=school is a landuse
is wrong. in this case amenity=school (as a node or a way) only
describe the localisation and/or the level, not the landuse.
It is also wrong to believe that amenity=school implies 
landuse=residential (because the landuse of an office building
is not residential)
even if the majority of schools have the same extent between 
amenity=school and landuse=school (or equivalent), there are many cases 
that show that sometimes it is different and that therefore the 2 tags 
are not synonymous
