This paper argues that language and assessment are closely linked and that the Language-in-Education policy and other additive bilingual initiatives have failed to address educational equity in South African schools. Despite the aspirations of politicians to move towards a policy of multiculturalism through the additive approach to bilingualism in education, it is the opinion of this study, that this policy essentially remains a symbolic gesture.
