So why  on earth is it wrong to donate instruments to Schools and right to
donate  them to Churches?

The churches I cited were in poverty areas in foreign lands where there are  
no music stores, where missionaries had just built the church. The last drum 
set  we donated went to Peru where they had never even seen a drum set before.
The schools I cited were ones that receive no tax money support and the  
parents are pay two tuitions for every kid they educate.
The school I was arguing against was in Sacramento, home of the biggest  live 
jazz festival in the world and is already funded handsomely by the  
government (read you & me).
You missed the fine points of difference. There is no funding problems in  
government schools. Look at the administration staff, the teacher benefits  
packages and the sports programs.
