In this June 7, 2014, file photo, Odessa High School graduates pose for a group portrait prior to the start of the commencement ceremony in Odessa, Texas.

Scores released April 27, 2016, from the so-called Nation's Report Card show one-quarter of 12th graders taking the test performed proficiently or better in math. Only 37 percent of the students were proficient or above in reading. (Photo by Edyta Blaszczyk/Odessa American via AP Photo)

Ukrainians light candles near the memorial for “liquidators” who died during cleaning up works after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster, during a ceremony in Slavutich city, some 190 km north of the capital Kiev, Ukraine, early 26 April 2016. In the early hours of 26 April 1986 the Unit 4 reactor at the Chernobyl power station blew apart. Facing nuclear disaster on unprecedented scale Soviet authorities tried to contain the situation by sending thousands of ill-equipped men into a radioactive maelstrom. The men barely lasted more than a few weeks suffering lingering painful deaths. The explosion of Unit 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant is still regarded the biggest accident in the history of nuclear power generation.
