Does Taking Out A Thermostat Prevent Overheating

I have a 1998 Sunfire and I had replaced the thermostat (not knowing any better) because it was overheated. It is still overheating. According to the mechanic, he took the thermostat and the car is no longer overheating (although he says that this is only a temporary solution). Does that make sense? It seems that it would not help anything. Is it dangerous to drive around them like this?
