There is also a mapzen map that helps identify schools marked only by a
node. The map is a bit clunky so someone may be able to come up with
something better using umap. As Brian noted, we have over 6000 schools
tagged just with a node.

^ The above link also provides a nice graphic reminding us how to map
schools in detail (the area is the full school grounds).

The gov.uk data for England looks great. A couple of observations from me:

* It includes closed schools in a separate worksheet! It would be great if
someone could compare this to OSM data to see if we have any inaccurate
* The data is very rich - do we want to start tagging establishment type,
sixth form, etc? And if so, how?
