Privitization of Public Universities

There is a good article in the NYTimes today about the privatization of public schools through long, slow reduction of the amount of public funds they are given. I was astonished to find that the University of Virginia only receives 8% of a student's funding through public funds. I wonder then how much public funding private schools have (through federal loans, etc.) and wonder what it exactly means to be a public school.
