Could someone explain the meaning of the following sentence for me?
In terms of academic achievement, however, homeschooled children do just as well as those who have been in the classroom, and many walk the campuses of Harvard and Stanford alongside the conventionally educated.
--if "walk" should goes with "alongside"?
--and what does this sentence mean?

is that home-schooled kids and conventionally educated ones are able to do the same things, no difference. And the image of walking along the campus is kind of metaphoric, meaning that both groups have the same education skills.
