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
