Interesting, it hadn't occurred to me to tag a shared grounds 
simultaneously as amenity=school *and* landuse=religious. That would at 
least allow a savvy data consumer to differentiate shared 
school/churchgrounds. For example, an Overpass query would subtract 
double-tagged amenity=school landuse=religious features from the overall 
number of amenity=school features.

It would be less intuitive than querying for a tag for schoolgrounds 
that's distinct from the tag for schools, and it still wouldn't address 
the issue of multiple schools colocated on the same grounds. On the 
other hand, landuse=educational would prevent me from explicitly tagging 
a shared schoolground (since landuse=religious shares the same key).
