What is sarcasm?

What is sarcasm?

We met an engineer in his forties and greeted him for the new year.

Pleasantaries were exchanged. A few topics were briefly discussed and the
subject of schools came up.

The engineer says: Schools these days are mere commercial entities. They charge close to a lakh of rupees for admission into even lower classes.

I asked my child to recite the alphabets and as he recited four alphabets were missing and jumped by him. When I went and asked his school teacher she says: Your child was absent on that day. You should have taught him at home....

I know sarcasm. But I am not sure if that guy was sarcastic in his remark!!
