    Is the term, "Appreciation Education" correct?

    Kindly advise whether the term, "Appreciation Education" is grammatically correct for an education system using appreciation method instead of the discipline, punishment based and complaint method. It appears to me that Appreciation is a noun and so is Education. Should it be termed as "Appreciative Education" whereby appreciative is an adjective to describe the type of Education? Or it should be appropriately termed as ............ Your advice on the proper use of English shall be very much appreciated . Thanks

    If you have invented it, you can call it what you like. Either would do. There is no problem with using two nouns together like this.

    Dear Raymott,
    Thank you for your reponse.

    Do you mean that if this is just a name then it could be invented and call it whatever we like?

    On the other hand, do you agree that strictly based on grammar this is not correct, we don't put two nouns together like this?

    Thank you!

    It's grammatically acceptable to call it Appreciation Education.
    For example, we can say Music Education, rather than Musical Education; Maths Education rather than Mathematical Education.
