Ever since then, on mainframes and the PCs, I was told to always use double-spacing after sentences. If I handed in a typed or word-processed document and did not double space it, I was marked off for not using the standard "format".

Remember that teachers are not always the quickest to catch up with new practices!

Also some required double-spacing for the lines of text as well.

That's another relic from Typewriterland, of course. In a word processor, you can space lines or paragraphs vertically by any amount you like: you do not have to be limited to adding space in whole text line heights. It's better to think of extra vertical spacing in millimetres or inches or points, not lines.
