 From experience I would say schools are the entities that are most 
likely to be mapped with duplicating nodes & polygons, so I'm unsure if 
those numbers are truly representative. I've even noticed that 
individual school buildings are occasionally tagged as amenity=school 
causing a similar problem to Cambridge University..

The boundary polygon should include not only the buildings & 
playgrounds, but recreation grounds/sports pitches
