These pictures go up in order from the superintendent to the principal to the teachers to the students. By making the analogy that the transfer of energy equals to the transfer of knowledge, this list of people functions similarly to a food chain. At the primary level of this organizational structure, we have the superintendent, who functions similarly to a producer in that he is the basis for all the schools in the city and directs all of them. Next, we have the principals, who are essentially herbivores. They are directed by the superintendent just like the herbivores feed of the producers. Next, the teachers represent the secondary consumers because they are given the curriculum by the principal and finally the students represent the tertiary consumer because they are then taught the curriculum by the teachers.
