Does "who am I decide what counts as a life worth living" mean "who am I that decide what counts as a life worth living"?

That is, "that" is omitted.


--------------------------
The goal of the course is not to choose for the student what a life worth living looks like, but for the student to experiment and see what works for them, according to their own style. As long as it causes no harm to self or others, who am I decide what counts as a life worth living?

The sentence, which is ungrammatical, contains a typo. It should read:

". . . who am I to decide what counts as a life worth living?"

"To" cannot be replaced with "that."
