Hi Robin.

I see this problem plenty in NYC as well -- property with one or more
buildings which are shared by multiple schools. Usually it isn't
possible to tell which portions of the property are used by which
schools, so I map one amenity=school node for each school, placed
somewhere inside the most prominent building.

It makes sense to me to tag the school grounds with a landuse. The wiki
says to use amenity=school as a pseudo-landuse tag for the whole area,
but that seems wrong to me -- I don't want to map three schools when
only two exist!

I'd prefer landuse=education to landuse=school, but landuse=school is
much more popular (due some imports I think.)
