Student or Learner
Isn't the following sentence correct?
"It is critical that people are conscious of what type of information to be posted."
On the text book I have, it says the sentence has to be changed to:
"It is critical that people are conscious of what type of information will be posted."
I don't understand why. Please explain the reason for me.
Thank you very much!!

Would you explain why the sentence has to have "is" or "will?"
Let's start with the rest of the sentence: It is critical that people be conscious of what type of information......posted.
The missing words will mainly supply the tense to the latter part of the sentence.
There are several choices and some of them are below:
...information is to be posted
...information will be posted.
...information is posted.
...information is being posted.
...information has been posted.
...information was posted.
Some of these choices may not be suitable in the specific sentence we are talking about, but I am just focussing on the grammar possibilities at the end of that sentence.
