We don't need no education

Do you think that these kinds of feelings towards education would appear if teachers had another way of teaching?

Now, look at the title. Is it correct?
In fact, it isn't correct. You cannot use "no" with a verb in negative.
It should say: "We don't need any education".
Remember that in English two negatives are positive, just like in Maths. So, therefore, grammatically, the title means that we need education.
It is a common mistake among uneducated people. Using this pattern, they are laughing at the people who talk like this.
