But Torres-Velasquez and others are opposed to the change because of a perceived top-down approach that places business and workplace skills over critical thinking and education. "It would be problematic for administrators to come in and tell us what the meta-majors are because that would affect our academic freedom," Torres-Velasquez said. Originally, the law was only supposed to change the course numbers in lower-division classes "in a way that was common to all universities," Torres-Velasquez said.
