Why should landuse not be suitable? It is land (ground) wich is used by
educational institutions.....

Actually, - and that i found a little bit funny, - there is a
discription on the "Land use"-Wiki-page about what is a landuse-> "*Land
use*, as the name suggests, describes what an area of land is used for
e.g. housing, commercial activities, farming, *education*, leisure,
etc." https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Land_use
So education is everytime a "land use" - it is formal shown as implied
by the educational-amenities. I don't think so to create a new "amenity"
- because it is not a amenity. The school is. But the ground is land.
And a single school has a "school site" too - so how connect amenities
school and school_site? For me, this is not really clear.
I would find it easier to separate the landuse from its direct
dependency on the ameinitie.
