In this sentence there are two conjugated verbs in a row but I don't understand it. When I started learning Spanish I was taught that it should always be verb + infinitive.

qué debería considera la gente cuando toma este tipo de decisiones

Can someone explain this to me please? Why don't we say "qué debería considerar" instead?

You are right about the rule you were taught, the sentence should be:

qué debería considerar la gente cuando toma este tipo de decisiones

Most probably it was a typo, since the sentence you received doesn't make sense otherwise.
